How to Take a Screenshot on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Earlier in September Apple decided to rock the world with another iteration of their famous iPhone. This time around they had even more success than in previous years. With record high sales following the release date, we can only wonder what the final statistics will be once these phones hit global markets. Even at this early stage, it is clear that Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus continue to lead the industry like their predecessors previously did.
The latest wonder from Apple sports a 1.4 GHz dual-core Cyclone CPU based on the ARM v8. This CPU and 1 GB or RAM memory are the standard across both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus range of models. With this configuration, Apple proved once more that bigger is not always better as both new models work astonishingly well even under extreme loads. iPhone 6 Plus also comes with new camera stabilization technology that really improves this phone’s ability to take clear pictures of very high quality.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are available in three models that come with 16/64/128 GB of storage, effectively removing the mid-range 32GB model that we’re used to. We are yet to see how these phones will fare with users worldwide, but first indications clearly tell us that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are already a huge success.
Taking a screenshot with new iPhone 6/6 Plus is essentially the same process as with the previous models of this phone. The only difference is that Apple has decided to move the Sleep/Wake button on the new model. A very minor change, but one which may confuse the users who are used to the older button configuration found on previous iPhones. As Apple officially doesn’t include taking a screenshot in their instructional manuals, you can use this tutorial to quickly master this simple process.
To take a screenshot with your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, first you need to make sure that you have selected the exact screen you want to take a screenshot of. Next you need to press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and hit the Home button at the same time. If everything is done correctly, you will see a short flash on your screen and hear the distinctive camera shutter sound, the same one your camera makes when you take a picture with your phone. Of course, you can do this the other way around, by holding the Home button and then pressing the Sleep/Wake button. Only bad thing about doing it this way is that it may be tricky to take a screenshot of your Lock Screen as you may accidentally activate the Touch ID feature.
Once you have successfully created a screenshot, you will be able to access it in your Photos folder, under Recent Photos. Your new screenshot should be the first file on the list. Hopefully this short tutorial helped you, and made taking a screenshot an easy everyday task.
