KNOWING how to screenshot on your iPhone is an essential skill in the modern age.

If you want to share an image with friends or remember something, screenshotting is a great option. It's easy to do, if you know how.

How do I screenshot on an iPhone?

The way you take a screenshot depends on which model of iPhone you have.

For those with face ID – from iPhone X upward – you need to press the side (sleep/wake) button and the volume up button at the same time, then release them both quickly.

This will bring up a preview of your screenshot.

If you're happy with it, save it. If not, close that image and try again.

The process is similar for phones with touch ID.

Press the home and side (sleep/wake) buttons at the same time, and release both buttons quickly.

For older phones without face or touch ID, you need to hold down the sleep/wake button at the side or the top, then press the home button.

This also works on phones with touch ID.

Alternatively, you can use Siri to take a screenshot by activating Siri in your usual way by saying “hey Siri, take a screenshot”.

You can also take a screenshot without using any actual buttons, with the virtual, or floating, assistive touch "button".

To do this, first access the "floating button". This can be found under the "Accessibility" settings on your iPhone.

Activating this button makes it "float" on the screen, and opens a series of screens for you to choose from.

To open this series of screens,you simply touch or hover over the button.

You can leave the floating button available all the time and just drag it out of the way when not needed.

To put the button on your screen, go to Settings, then Accessibility, and under "physical and motor", select Assistive touch.

To use the button, activate it by holding your finger on it, then choose Device, then More, then Screenshot.

Another way to take a screenshot is by using an external app, like Web Capture, which can be downloaded to your phone.

Though technically not a screenshot, you can also hover on an image to bring up a context menu, where you can choose to save the image.

Where are the screenshots saved?

Screenshots are automatically saved in your camera roll.

To find your screenshots, open Photos, then Albums, then Screenshots.

You can choose to save a screenshot to your camera roll or straight to your files just after you have taken it.

A small image will pop up at the bottom of your screen for a few seconds, after you screenshot.

Tap on this image for a pop-up menu where you can edit, save to Photos or Files, or delete the image.

If you use the option to save an image using its context menu, you can choose for this to go to your camera roll or clipboard.

Can you tell if someone has taken a screenshot of texts?

No. It is not possible to tell if someone has taken a screenshot of a text or iMessage you have sent.

However, this is not the case for other popular apps.

Snapchat and Instagram often show a user when someone has taken a screenshot of their content.

But the only iPhone-specific app where you are likely to get alerted if someone has taken a screenshot is on a FaceTime call.
