Take a look at this iPhone screenshot hack. Screenshots can be used to save more than simple image files.
Every year, I take thousands of screenshots across all platforms.
Do you think of images when you hear the word “screenshot”? In any case, iOS now has the ability to export screenshots as PDFs.
They aren’t just screenshots of the part of your screen that you can view. No, these are full-screen screenshots of things that don’t fit on your screens, such as webpages, documents, or emails.
It’s quite useful!
Here’s how to do that (within mind that this capability debuted in iOS 15):
- First and foremost, locate some stuff that is larger than your screen. Take, for example, a website.
- Take a screenshot as usual (on an iPhone with Face ID, press and release the side button and the volume up button simultaneously; on an iPhone with Touch ID, press and release the Home button and the side button or the Sleep/Wake button simultaneously, depending on the iPhone you have).
- After you’ve taken a screenshot, press it in the bottom-left corner of the screen to maximize it.
Select Full Page from the drop-down menu.
- You may now save the screenshot as a PDF or share it with others.
That’s all there is to it.
I don’t take PDF screenshots very often, but when I do, this feature comes in handy.
