If you recently upgraded to an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max from an older iPhone or Android device, you may not know how to quick take a screenshot. In this guide we’ll show you how to do that.
On iPhone’s with a home button you take a screenshot using the home button and the side button. The iPhone 14 series doesn’t have a home button so the steps are a bit different.
There are a few different ways to capture a screenshot on an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max. The easiest way is via a button combination but you can also take a screenshot without having to press any buttons.
How to Take a Screenshot on iPhone 14
Here’s how to capture, and edit, a screenshot on your iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max.
iPhone 14 Screenshot With Buttons
If you want to capture a screenshot on your iPhone 14 using buttons, you’ll need to utilize two buttons located on the side of your phone.
To take a screenshot, hold down the volume up key (located on the left side of the device) and the Side button (located on the right side of the device) at the same time.
If done correctly, you’ll hear a shutter sound (unless you have your phone silenced) and you’ll notice a thumbnail of the photo popup in the bottom left corner of your phone’s screen.
If you ignore the thumbnail, it will disappear after a couple of seconds and the screenshot will head to your Library in the Photos app.
You can also tap on the thumbnail which will bring you to a preview where you can edit the screenshot or delete it.
iPhone 14 Screenshot Without Buttons
Believe it or not you can also take a screenshot on your iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max without having to hold down any buttons. Here’s how to do this.
This feature lets you use a double tap or triple tap on the back of your iPhone 14 to perform certain actions like taking a screenshot.
You can now double or triple tap the back of your iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max to take a screenshot.
You can also use your iPhone’s AssistiveTouch feature to take a screenshot.
Once you do that, you’ll see a circular button appear on the right side of the display. Head down to the Custom Actions section where you’ll see Single-Tap, Double-Tap, and Long Press.
You’ll now want to assign Screenshot to one of these sections. Once you’ve done that, you’ll want to use the gesture you selected on the circular AssistiveTouch button to take a screenshot.
You can also tap the AssistiveTouch button, tap Device in the next menu, tap More, and then tap Screenshot to take a screenshot.
How to Edit a Screenshot on iPhone 14
Again, you’ll see a thumbnail appear in the bottom left-hand corner of the display after you successfully take a screenshot. If you tap it, you’ll be brought to a new menu that allows you to quickly edit the screenshot or delete it.
This screen lets you crop the screenshot, annotate it, or rotate it. When you’re finished editing, you’ll want to tap Done in the top left corner of the screen and the screenshot will get sent to your Library with the edits you’ve made.
