How to take a screenshot on the iPhone SE

(Pocket-lint) – Apple has a few models in its iPhone portfolio, from the latest iPhone SE (2022) and iPhone 13 models, to some older models like the iPhone 12.

While the iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models feature Face ID technology though, the third generation iPhone SE features Touch ID, like the second generation iPhone SE and the iPhone 6, 7 and 8 models.

If you have a Face ID iPhone, then you’ll need to press the side button and volume up simultaneously to take a screenshot. If you have a Touch ID iPhone like the new iPhone SE, here’s what you need to do.

How to take a screenshot on the iPhone SE, or iPhone 6, 7 or 8

To take a screenshot on the Apple iPhone SE (2022), iPhone SE (2020), or the iPhone 6, iPhone 7 or iPhone 8, you’ll need to press the power button on the right edge at the same time as the Touch ID home button below the screen.

A screenshot will appear in the bottom left corner of your display when you have successfully taken a screenshot of what is on your display.

How to mark up a screenshot on iPhone SE

When you take a screenshot on iPhone, a small preview appears in the bottom left corner. If you tap on the preview, you’ll be taken to a new screen, where you’ll find a number of options.

You can either delete the screenshot by tapping on the bin icon in the top right corner, or you can crop the screenshot by pulling down on the corners around the screenshot. 

It’s also possible to mark up your iPhone screenshot from this page. Tap on any of the pens below the screenshot and you can draw on it as you please. When you are finished, tap on ‘Done’ in the top left corner.
