Taking a Screenshot on iPhone X, XR, XS, XS Max, 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max

In 2017, Apple launched the iPhone X – the first Apple smartphone without a Home button. Apple continues to release iPhones that lack a Home button, and so certain iOS functions are performed differently to older iPhones with a Home button, including taking screenshots.

Here’s how to take the screenshot:

  • Press the Side button and the Volume up button at the same time.
  • Quickly release both buttons.
  • A preview of the screenshot will pop up in the lower left of the display. Tap it to open up the Instant Markup interface, or let it disappear (this takes about five seconds) and it will be saved as-is.
  • The Instant Markup interface lets you add text, crop, highlight specific areas in a screenshot.

  • Quickly release both buttons.
  • A preview of the screenshot will pop up in the lower left of the display. Tap it to open up the Instant Markup interface, or let it disappear and it will be saved in Photo library.
