iPhone – Taking Screenshots / Screendumps

KB ID 0000361


All iPhones (above version 2 on 3G, 3GS and iPhone4) have the ability to take screenshots without having to download an app!


1. Assuming you have the screen open you would like to capture, press the “Home” button, and while still having it pressed briefly press the “Sleep/Lock” button

2. The screen should “flash white” briefly and providing you are not on silent, you should hear the camera shutter.

3. You can take multiple images and they will be stored in Photos > Camera Roll.
