Prior to the iPhone X, taking a screenshot on iPhone had been the same for generations of the device. You'd simply press the power and home button together briefly, and just like that, a screenshot was taken and saved in your gallery. With the new range of devices, however, there is no home button. 

Here's how to take a screenshot on the iPhone X, XS, XS Max and XR. 

Taking a screenshot

To take a screenshot on the iPhone XS or XS Max, press the Side button and Volume up button together. 

Pressing both at the same time will save an image of the screen and show you a preview in the bottom left hand corner. If you don't want to edit it or mark it up, just swipe it away or do nothing, and it'll save a copy in your Photos app, under the screenshots category. 



If you've taken the screenshot but want to edit it or mark it up in anyway, then you can tap on the preview image at the bottom left of the screen.

Here you'll get a number of markup tools enabling you to scribble on the screenshot or crop it to the shape you want.

There's pen, marker, pencil, rubber, lasso for cutting out, and colour palette options. You can also press the + symbol to get more tools like Text, Signature, a Magnifier, and predefined shapes like circles and squares.

Saving and sharing

You can save the screenshot or delete it, for that matter, at any point by clicking on the word "Done" at the top left of the screen. Here you get the option to Save to Photos or Delete Screenshot.

If you want to share the screenshot with someone else or save it to Files you can press the Share icon and then choose the relevant service.

Once you've saved it or sent it, you can click on Done and delete the screenshot if you don't want it anymore.
