The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are here. Though the new iPhones have the same design as last year’s iPhone 6S, there are notable changes. One of the biggest changes is a new home button powered by a Taptic Engine. The physical home button is gone. The new pressure-sensitive virtual home button gives the feel of a click instead of actually clicking. Has the new home button changed the way we take screenshots?
Take screenshots on iPhone 7
The process of taking screenshots on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus hasn’t changed much despite the devices featuring a new home button. Here’s how you can capture screenshots on Apple’s latest smartphones:
- Launch the app you want to screenshot and go to the exact screen you wish to capture.
- Press and hold the Power button located on the right side. Click the Home button at the same time. It will prevent you from accidentally activating Siri or TouchID.
- Now you’ll see the screen flashing white, and hear the camera shutter sound.
- The screenshot is saved to your phone’s Camera Roll (if you don’t use iCloud Photo Library) or to the All Photos album.
- To access the screenshot, launch the Photos app
- Scroll down to the bottom to find the screenshot in Camera Roll or All Photos
It’s pretty easy, isn’t it?
How to reboot iPhone 7
There are a few things that have changed with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. For instance, the process of rebooting your iPhone or putting it into DFU mode has changed. On older iPhones, you could press the Power button and Home button simultaneously to force a reboot. But now it won’t recognize the Home button presses when the device is frozen.
If you want to reboot your iPhone 7:
- Press and hold the Power button on the right side
- Press and hold the volume down button while continuing to hold the Power button
- Continue to hold these two buttons as the screen turns off and then turns back on to display the Apple logo
