How To Take A Screenshot With The iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have moved the sleep/wake button to a new location, but you can still take screenshots as easily as ever. And yes, while this might be second-nature to some, Apple doesn’t tell you how to take a screenshot out of the box. So, not everyone may yet know that they can capture their iPhone screen content with just the touch of a button (well, two buttons actually).

Maybe you want to show off a game score, make a record of an email or ticket, keep a notification, or just capture a special moment, it’s quick and simple to do.

To take a screenshot with your iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold the sleep/wake button and then click the Home button. You can do it the other way around, but if you’re trying to take a screenshot of your Lock screen, Touch ID might kick in and ruin it for you.

If you nail the timing, the screen will flash and you’ll hear the same camera shutter sound that the Camera app makes when you take a photo.

To access and share your screenshots go to Photos and open Recent Photos. They’ll be the latest ones added!
