How to Take a Screen Shot on an iPhone
The seventh generation of the new smartphones iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus received a completely different Home button. Now instead of a physical button there will be a touch. Perhaps buying a new smartphone, you will have a question, how can I take a screenshot.
The new Home button is capacitive, however, the built-in Tapic Engine technology will allow you to feel the pressure the same as on previous iPhone models where the button was physical. It also means that system features like entering DFU mode or a full iPhone reset will go a little differently.
So what about the screenshot? This can be done the same way as on all Apple devices.
How to take a screenshot?
Step one. Press the power button. Power (the one that locks the device) on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
Step Two At the same time, press the Home button (the button at the bottom of the screen with the fingerprint sensor).
Step Three Your iPhone’s screen will blink for a second and at this time you will hear a sound similar to a camera shutter release. If this happened, then a screenshot was taken.
If you can not hold both buttons at the same time, practice again. If you do not pinch them at the same time, Siri may accidentally open, or the iPhone will lock.

How to find and use these screenshots?
