Like Android phones, Apple has also given an easy way to capture screenshots. So, you can capture what is being displayed on your iPhone’s screen. Apple also lets you quickly edit the screenshot before it is saved on your phone. Later, you can share the screenshot with your friends. If you just switched from Android to iOS, you might find it hard to understand how to capture screenshots on the iPhone. This is the reason I am writing this detailed guide on how to screenshot on iPhone.

Previously, keys to capture screenshots were different because they also used TouchID. After Apple removed TouchID, it had to implement a new way to capture screenshots on iPhone. So, I will talk about capturing screenshots on all generations of iPhones.
