You want to capture a screenshot but your iPhone buttons are broken? Now, without further ado, here’s How to take a screenshot on iPhone without using buttons.
Normally, you can capture a screenshot on your iPhone by pressing the right combination of physical buttons. This may require pressing the Side and Volume Up buttons, the Home and side buttons, or the Home and top buttons at the same time, depending on your iPhone model.
There are various ways to snap screenshots on an iPhone if some of those buttons are damaged or you have a physical condition that prohibits you from doing so.
How to Take Screenshots with AssistiveTouch
AssistiveTouch is an accessibility feature on iPhones that allows you to do activities without using physical buttons and instead utilizing an onscreen menu. It also allows you to take a screenshot in a variety of ways.
To activate AssistiveTouch, follow these steps:
- On your iPhone, go to Settings.
- Now select “Accessibility” from the drop-down menu.
- Select “Touch” from the drop-down menu.
- Select AssistiveTouch from the drop-down menu.
- “AssistiveTouch” should be enabled.
You’ll see a button at the edge of your screen after turning on AssistiveTouch. Unless you disable AssistiveTouch, this button will always be visible on the screen. By dragging it with your finger, you may position it wherever you wish.
When you tap on the AssistiveTouch button to capture a screenshot, you’ll see that the button transforms into a pop-up menu. Choose Device > More from the menu, then touch “Screenshot.”
There’s one additional method for capturing screenshots. Navigate to the AssistiveTouch configuration page. Scroll down until you reach the “Custom Actions” section. If you single-tap, double-tap, long-press, or 3D Touch the onscreen AssistiveTouch button, you may pick what occurs.
You can choose any of these options, but for this example, we’ll go with “3D Touch.”
You will now see a selection of actions after selecting the Custom Action of your choice. Return to the previous screen by scrolling down and tapping “Screenshot.”
You may now take a screenshot by simply completing the custom action you choose. If we 3D Touch on the new AssistiveTouch symbol in our example, the iPhone will capture a screenshot.
This is one of the simplest methods for taking screenshots on your iPhone or iPad without having to use the physical buttons.
