How You Can Take Screenshots on the iPhone X

The fact that the iPhone X doesn't have a home button means that you'll need to learn a few new gestures. There's the home gesture, the multitasking gesture, and even a new way to access Apple Pay, among others. But one less-common action that has issues due to the lack of a home button is taking a screenshot.

Thankfully, it's still not very hard to do. Instead of pressing the home button and the sleep/wake switch (AKA power button) like you used to, all you'll have to do is press and hold the side button and the volume up button simultaneously. By the way, "side button" is Apple's new term for the power button since it does a lot more than just wake your phone now.




So basically, just squeeze your phone on both sides simultaneously, making sure your fingers are positioned over the side button and the volume up button, then you'll have a screenshot! And because the iPhone X runs iOS 11 out of the box, you'll also see the new markup screen after taking a screenshot, which even lets you annotate your image. 



While you're here, I'd also like to point out that you can now record your screen without jailbreak in iOS 11. It's a pretty simple process,
It may take a few tries to get used to the new screenshot gesture, but it's very similar to most Android phones if you've ever used one of those. What are your thoughts on this new gesture? Let us know in the comment section below.
