How To Take Screenshots on iPhone 15 Pro Max

Method 1: Using Buttons

  1. Locate the Volume Up button on the left side of your iPhone 15 Pro Max.
  2. Simultaneously press and hold the Volume Up button and the Side button (located on the right side of your device) at the same time.
  3. Release both buttons quickly.

You’ll hear a camera shutter sound (unless your phone is on silent mode), indicating that the screenshot has been successfully captured. Additionally, a thumbnail of the screenshot will appear temporarily in the bottom left corner of your screen. You can tap on the thumbnail to access further options or simply let it disappear, as the screenshot will be saved automatically in your Photos app.

Method 2: Taking Screenshots Without Buttons

Believe it or not, you can also capture screenshots on your iPhone 15 Pro Max without having to press any physical buttons. This can be especially useful if you have difficulty pressing multiple buttons simultaneously. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone 15 Pro Max.
  2. Scroll down and select Accessibility.
  3. Tap on Touch.
  4. Scroll further down until you find the Back Tap option.

Back Tap is a feature that allows you to perform various actions by double-tapping or triple-tapping the back of your iPhone. To enable screenshot capture:

  1. Choose either Double Tap or Triple Tap, depending on your preference.
  2. Scroll down and select Screenshot from the list of available actions.
  3. Wait until you see a checkmark next to the Screenshot.

Now, you can simply double-tap or triple-tap the back of your iPhone 15 Pro Max to capture a screenshot. It’s a convenient alternative method that can come in handy in certain situations.

AssistiveTouch is another accessibility feature that can simplify the process of taking screenshots on your iPhone 15 Pro Max. Here’s how you can set it up:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone 15 Pro Max.
  2. Navigate to Accessibility.
  3. Select Touch.
  4. Toggle on AssistiveTouch.

Once AssistiveTouch is enabled, you’ll see a circular button on your screen’s right side. To take a screenshot using AssistiveTouch:

  1. Tap the AssistiveTouch button.
  2. Tap Device in the subsequent menu.
  3. Tap More.
  4. Finally, tap Screenshot.

You can also customize the gestures associated with AssistiveTouch in the Custom Actions section. This gives you the flexibility to assign screenshot capture to a specific gesture, such as a single tap or long press.

Method 3: Using Siri

You can also use Siri to take screenshots on your iPhone 15 Pro Max. To do this, simply say “Hey Siri” to activate Apple’s voice assistant.

Then say “Take a screenshot.” Siri will confirm your request, the animated Siri icon will disappear from your screen, and your iPhone will automatically capture a screenshot.

The screenshot will briefly appear as a thumbnail in the bottom left corner. All screenshots taken this way are saved to the Screenshots album in the Photos app as PNG files by default.

To save a screenshot somewhere else, tap the thumbnail when it appears and select “Save to Files.” Your iPhone will show you some locations to save the file including any folders you’ve already created. You can also make a new folder to organize related screenshots so you can easily find them later.

Editing and Sharing Your Screenshots

After capturing a screenshot on your iPhone 15 Pro Max, you may want to make some edits or share it with others. Here’s how you can do that:

  1. Immediately after taking a screenshot, a notification will appear at the bottom of your screen.
  2. Tap the screenshot notification to access editing and sharing options.
  3. To edit the screenshot, tap the Edit option. This will open a screen where you can crop, annotate, rotate, or make other adjustments to the screenshot.
  4. Once you’re satisfied with the edits, tap Done in the top left corner of the screen to save your changes.
  5. To share the screenshot, tap the Share icon. This will open a menu with various sharing options, such as sending the screenshot via messages, email, or social media platforms.
  6. If you decide that you no longer need the screenshot, you can tap the Delete icon to remove it from your device.
