If you’re an iPhone X user, then you might want to stop reading right here.

On previous iPhones with a Home button, the process was quite simple: just press the Home + Power buttons together and a screenshot will be taken instantly. If you have a phone without a Home button, then things are slightly different.

iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max users can take screenshots wherever they are in the OS by simply holding down the Power + Volume Up key combinations. The screen will flash white confirming that a screenshot has been taken and you will also see a tiny little thumbnail in the bottom left corner of the display showing you a preview of what you’ve taken. But if you tap on that preview, you’ll get editing tools as well, allowing you to crop the screenshot, scribble notes on it if you like, share it or just save it to the Photos app.

Here’s a quick demo on how the process works:

Taking screenshots can be extremely handy at times as it allows you to highlight something on the screen without having to go through several taps and apps. Just press two keys together and you’re done. All you have to do is get your point across, and that is entirely up to you how you do it.

Personally, I take a lot of screenshots on a daily basis. Not because it has something to do with work, but because it makes my life easier. Why tap on hold on an image to save it when you can just screenshot it immediately? This is especially handy when you want to point out certain irregularities in an image. Such as a poorly created meme and how bad the template was.

I’m sure you get the point by now.
