Tips on how to stay safe online during the COVID-19 pandemic

Taking a screenshot on an Apple device

A screenshot is a photo of what is on your device’s screen. 

Taking a screenshot with an iPhone, iPad or iPod 

  1. Press and hold the Power button, and the Home button (at the exact same time).  
  2. You should see the screen flash or change before it goes back to normal. 
  3. The screenshot usually gets saved in the same place as all other photos you take. 


If this screenshot method doesn’t work for your device, we suggest you open a search engine and search ‘How do I take a screenshot with a (your device type/model)’. 

There are also some apps that can be used to take a screenshot. Open the App Store and search ‘screen capture’.
