How can we make a screenshot with the iPhone 8? We need to hold several physical buttons for a few seconds.

1. Press the "Side" button. (the button that switches your devices on and off). Tap the "Home" button concurrently on the iPhone's front. Hold both for one second (or more) before letting go. 

2. Once done, the display will flash white in a blink. You will see a smaller version of this screenshot in the left-hand bottom corner. 

3. Click on that small version to navigate to the edit menu.

Step 2. Edit Your Screenshot

1. Press that small photo.

2. Crop your shot by moving these blue edges surrounding the photo. You can also use drawing and annotating tools to highlight some parts.

3. In the right corner lies a plus icon. What does it do? It lets you access text boxes and add signatures. We also have a magnifier. As the name implies, it zooms your photo bigger. Experience these tools for the best results!

4. Happy with what you have? Tap "Done". (in the left upper corner). The photo will save itself in your Photos album and Screenshots album

Tip 1. Hold The Power Button and The Home Button Concurrently

Not being able to take screenshots can be frustrating. Still, there are times when the phone is unresponsive or frozen. You may hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time. Still, some changes are present in iOS 10. For iOS 10, we suggest pressing "Power" one second before "Home". 

Tip 2. Force Your Phone to Reboot

Hold the "Power" and "Home" buttons for 10 seconds. After that, your phone will reboot itself. Everything will be back to normal, so no worry!

Tip 3. Use AssistiveTouch As An Alternative.

What if the two previous tips do not work? (or you don't like them). Then you may turn to AssistiveTouch for solutions.

  • Step 1. Navigate to "Settings" - "General" - "Accessibility".
  • Step 2. Hit AssistiveTouch and activate it.
  • Step 3. There is a white digital button on the screen. Tap it, then go to Device - More - Screenshot.

Tip 4. Use The 3D Touch As An Alternative.
