Taking screenshots is a very important functionality that we all need in our smartphones. Each one of us has different reasons for ‘screenshotting’. For some, it is for snitching on others, while for others, it is for helpful tutorials.

Whatever your reasons are, you will be rudely shocked to learn Apple changed how you take screenshots on its new iPhone X. Traditionally, you take screenshots on an iPhone by using the Home button and Side button simultaneously.

The iPhone X has a screen running edge-to-edge and Apple spruced it up a bit and changed how you take a screenshot on this particular generation of iPhones. To take screenshots on an iPhone X, you will need to press the Side button and the Volume up button at the same time.

Doing so will give you a preview of the screenshot at the lower left corner of the screen. You can tap it for a quick edit, markup, or delete then take a new screenshot. Swipe left to ignore the screenshot, but if you decide to ignore it, it will disappear automatically after some few seconds. You can always find it in the Photos app under the screenshot folder.
