Using the Physical Buttons to Take a Screenshot
To take a screenshot on your iPhone 14 using the physical buttons, follow these simple steps:
- Navigate to the screen you want to capture.
- Press the Side button (previously known as the Sleep/Wake button) on the right side of your iPhone 14, and the Volume Up button on the left side of your iPhone 14 at the same time.
- Release both buttons quickly. You should see a flash and hear a camera shutter sound, indicating that the screenshot has been taken.
- The screenshot will appear as a thumbnail in the bottom left corner of your screen. You can tap on it to open the Markup screen and edit it, or swipe it away to dismiss it.
- The screenshot will be automatically saved to your Photos app. You can find it in the “Screenshots” album, along with any other screenshots you have taken. From there, you can share it with your friends, family, or colleagues, or save it for later use.
Taking a Screenshot with Assistive Touch on iPhone 14
If you prefer not to use the physical buttons to take a screenshot on your iPhone 14, you can also use the Assistive Touch feature. Here’s how:
- Go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch, and turn on Assistive Touch.
- Tap on Customize Top Level Menu, and select the Screenshot option from the list.
- Go to the screen you want to capture.
- Tap on the Assistive Touch button on your screen.
- Tap on the Screenshot button in the menu.
- The screenshot will appear as a thumbnail in the bottom left corner of your screen, and you can edit or share it just like any other screenshot.
Using Assistive Touch to take a screenshot on your iPhone 14 is particularly useful if you have difficulty pressing the physical buttons, or if your physical buttons are not working properly. Plus, once you’ve turned on Assistive Touch, you can use it for a variety of other functions as well, such as accessing the Home screen, adjusting volume, or locking your screen.
Editing and Sharing Your iPhone 14 Screenshots
After you’ve taken a screenshot on your iPhone 14, you can edit it and share it in a variety of ways. Here are some options:
Edit the screenshot: Tap on the screenshot thumbnail that appears in the bottom left corner of your screen after you take a screenshot. This will take you to the Markup screen, where you can crop, annotate, highlight, or add text to your screenshot. Once you’re done, tap on Done, and then choose whether to save or share your edited screenshot.
Share the screenshot: Tap on the screenshot thumbnail that appears in the bottom left corner of your screen after you take a screenshot. This will open the Share Sheet, where you can choose how to share your screenshot. You can send it via iMessage or email, post it to social media, or save it to your Files or Notes app.
Share multiple screenshots at once: If you’ve taken multiple screenshots that you want to share, you can do so by going to the Photos app, selecting the screenshots you want to share, and tapping on the Share button. This will open the Share Sheet, where you can choose how to share your selected screenshots.
Use AirDrop to share your screenshot: If you have other Apple devices nearby, you can use AirDrop to quickly share your screenshot with them. Just tap on the screenshot thumbnail, tap on the Share button, and then select the device you want to share with from the AirDrop section.
With these editing and sharing options, you can quickly and easily customize and distribute your iPhone 14 screenshots to suit your needs.
