How to obtain an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch Screenshot

If you are reporting a bug, it may be very helpful to include a screenshot in your email.

Step 1

Simultaneously press the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons, then release them together.  The screen will flash briefly, and if your audio is not muted you will hear the camera sound.


Step 2

You'll find the screenshot in the Photos app: in the Camera Roll album on iPhone and in Saved Photos on iPad and iPod Touch.

You can email it from the Photos app to, or you can tap and select 'insert photo' while writing an email in Mail on your device.
