Introduction: How to Take a Screenshot on IPhone 6

There are times that you may desire to take screenshots of the text messages, save Snapchat photos or the high scores you've achieved while playing games and other information that displayed on your newly bought iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Fortunately, it has never been a tough task to take screenshots on these Apple devices. To do this trick, just simply press the built-in shortcut or make use of third-party screenshot apps. You can check the more detailed steps below on how to Take a screenshot on iPhone 6.

Step 1: ​Method One: Pressing the Home and Sleep/Wake Button to Snap

Although, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have moved the sleep/wake button to a new location, however this screenshot function is still feasible and easy to use as ever.

  1. Display anything you want to snap on your iPhone 6 screen.
  2. Simply press and hold the “Sleep/Wake” button and then press the “Home” button. Once it’s done, you will hear a camera shutter which signifies that a screenshot is successfully taken.
  3. Once a screenshot is captured, it will be automatically saved to your iPhone 6 Camera Roll. Thus you can head to your Camera roll and check the screenshot you have just taken. And then you can set it as wallpaper, share it via text messages, social networks like Facebook/Twitter, or edit it with the default photo editing app.

Tips: the sleep/wake button on iPhone 6 has been moved from the top of the iPhone to the right side.

Step 2: Using Third-party Tool

Apowersoft iPhone/iPad Recorder is mainly a tool for users to wirelessly mirror and record screen of iOS devices on Mac/Windows. But you can also use it to take screenshot of the iOS device's screen on computer. Below are the detailed steps of using it to take screenshot of iPhone 6.

The best way to take a screenshot is to get another camera out and take a picture of the iPhone.

That works to a degree. I have the screenshot. How do I send it to you?

it's not working for me, is there any feature that needs to be activated?

As BelindaW says: press and hold the "SLEEP AWAKE" button. Then tap the home button.

I do hope the original poster fixes their instructions. I found the original instructions to be wrong, too: pressing Home first brings up Siri, and I kept getting screenshots of the Siri screen. Trying both buttons at once did nothing.

So it is simple when the instruction are correct. AND here it is - press and hold the "SLEEP AWAKE" button. Then tap the home button

BelindaW (author)2014-11-14

When pressing and holding the home button, Siri comes on. These instructions make NO sense!

Press the sleep/wake button and the home button at the same time. At the same time!!!

JM1999 (author)nerfrocketeer2014-10-06

Imagine the next app; 'Hook your iPhone up to an air compressor via the headphone port, disconnect and plug in regulator to use it as an emergency airtank' Imagine the destruction!

nerfrocketeer (author)JM19992014-10-06

Better yet, put it inside a particle accelerator lol...

JM1999 (author)nerfrocketeer2014-10-07

Or just don't buy one!

That would solve all the problems that come with them...
