Ah, the iPhone 14! It’s like that shiny new toy you just got, and you’re still figuring out all its bells and whistles. Remember when you’d learn a new trick in school and rush home to show it off? Well, today, I’m going to be that cool kid in school who shows you how to take a screenshot on your new iPhone 14. It’s easier than tying your shoelaces, I promise!
A Glimpse Into the Basics
Before we dive in, it’s like understanding the ingredients before baking a cake. So, what is a screenshot? Think of it as a quick photo of whatever’s on your phone screen at that moment. Handy, right?
The Old Versus The New
You might think, “I know how to take a screenshot!” Sure, but did you know that with every new iPhone model, Apple often introduces tweaks and changes?
iPhone 13 and Before
Old iPhone models used to have a small button below the screen called the “Home” button. To take a screenshot, you would press that button and the Power button at the same time.
For most of the iPhone models up until the iPhone 13 that didn’t have a Home button, you’d press the side button and the volume up button together. It’s like giving your phone a mini high-five!
iPhone 14 – The New Kid on the Block
Here’s where the magic happens. With the iPhone 14, the process is still the same as most of those older models, so it should feel familiar if you have experience doing this on an iPhone that doesn’t have a Home button.
