How to take a screenshot on Apple's iPhone X

How to take a screenshot on Apple's iPhone X

The home button is gone on the Apple iPhone X, so how do you take a screenshot?

It used to be that you press the home key and the power key on the side to take a screenshot, but with no home key, the shortcut has now changed.

To take a screenshot on the Apple iPhone X you need to simply press down the power button on the side and the volume up key simultaneously. Hold them for a second, and you will hear the familiar sound and momentary blink as you take a screenshot.

Press and hold the side button and the volume up for an iPhone X screenshot


And yes, screenshots you take on the iPhone X definitely do not look good, as that unsightly notch is not edited out by default (here's to hoping Apple fixes this in an update by the time the X launches):

With iOS 11, screenshots are super-charged: you get to edit and annotate them easily, and they are all saved in a separate folder where you can go through previously captured screenshots.

Where samsung has reached new milestones in screenshots, Apple still lacks behinds. Where is the scrolling screenshot to take any length of screenshot from a page. Directly cropping and editing, the rectangular and oval screenshots which can even be used to extract editable text from any page or image. The pin to top which puts the content immediately on top to be used with other apps and the animation screenshot which can easily takes up to 15 seconds of animated gif screenshot from any page or app including Instagram videos saved as gif.
Apple will say it's a gimmick just like they said about palm swipe to take screenshot feature but these super smart features really make a Galaxy device as an amazing content oriented device, you get to choose what you want to extract. Well I'll rather enjoy all these great features rather than convincing myself by saying my anniversary phone which now has slow wireless charging and oled display can open app 0.007 seconds faster.

Quality over quantity. Technology Vs gimmicks. I think you must be very familiar with those saying....LOL Good luck with your feature packed (laggy, useless, common, slow, incapable, low quality) Androids.

These guys whine about s8 being laggy while I have a quad core A7 mediatek and 1 GB RAM. You should try it.

Where is the quality and technology in iPhone X? Do you've any idea what Note 8 is capable of??? You aren't from IT field definitely, that's why you've no knowledge about technology.

It's just a Samsung with iOS (and notch). Atleast, with Android, there's 6.4" screen, without the notch.

Doesn't matter for me, apple has finally priced me out. Here in Canada this phone is selling for $1329 plus taxes.

No thanks.

If you do the math for yourself, you'll see that it's still too expensive.

700 seems ok when compared to X or Note.

The iPhone 8 is nice and all but it's not much different than the 7. The only thing that would get me to upgrade is a huge bump in the camera department. I have small children and constantly taking pictures.

just pert near the corner of the Android shortcut - just to avoid patent things - volume down+power for android, volume up+power for Apple...

iPhonearena you're sure there's nothing else worth writing about than the iPhone X which has nothing but all we've previously seen?

Fix that notch Apple. No reason that can't be cropped when taking screen shot.
