The iPhone has a useful feature that allows you to take a picture of what's currently on your screen. This feature comes in handy when you want to send a picture of a new app you're using, or if you want to snap a photo of a conversation instead of using copy and paste. When you take a screenshot, the image saves in your camera roll, from where it can be sent to any recipient you choose.


Step 1

Take a screenshot by holding the home button down and pressing the sleep button on the top of your iPhone. You'll hear what sounds like a picture being taken and your screen will quickly fade out and fade back in.
