How to take a screenshot on any iPhone model

Published

on

  • You can take a screenshot on any iPhone model by pressing a combination of two buttons (or with a simple gesture using AssistiveTouch).
  • On iPhone X models, press the Power and Volume Up buttons simultaneously. On older iPhones , press the Power and the Home button.
  • Your new screenshot can be found in the Photos app.

You might be surprised by how often you need to take a screenshot on your iPhone .

Sure, tech journalists need to capture screenshots all the time to write articles like this one, but we all run into everyday situations where it’s handy to save their iPhonescreen to capture a text message, save a social media post, capture the winning screen of a game, or any of a hundred other common situations.

Thankfully, it’s very easy to take a screenshot. While the process varies depending upon what model iPhone you own, it takes just two fingers.

Take a screenshot on an iPhone X , iPhone XS , iPhone XR , or any model without a Home button

If you have a recent iPhone model one that eschews a Home button in favor of Face ID then you’ll take a screenshot with the buttons on the sides of the phone.

1. Make sure that your iPhone displays whatever it is that you want to capture.

2. Press and hold the Power button on the right side of the phone.

3. At the same moment, press the Volume Up button.

4. You should see the screen flash and an image of the screenshot appear in the lower left corner. Release both buttons. You can find the image in your Photos app.

Take a screenshot on an iPhone 8 , iPhone 7 , or any older model with a Home button

All iPhones from the earliest models through the iPhone 8 (and iPhone 8 Plus ) use the Home button to take a screen shot.

1. Make sure that your iPhone displays whatever it is that you want to capture.

2. Press and hold the Power button on the right side of the phone.

3. At the same moment, press the Home button.

4. You should see the screen flash and an image of the screenshot appear in the lower left corner. Release both buttons.

What can go wrong with your screenshot

Pressing two buttons at the same time can be tricky, and might take a little practice. If you don’t time it right, you might turn the phone off, trigger Siri, or activate Touch ID. Many people find that pressing (and holding) the Power button ever so slightly ahead of the Volume Up or Home button works most reliably.

Configure AssistiveTouch to take a screenshot without pressing buttons

AssistiveTouch is an iOS accessibility feature that gives you alternative ways to perform a lot of common tasks on your phone without needing to press buttons or perform swiping gestures. You can set up your iPhone to take screenshots with this feature. If AssistiveTouch isn’t already enabled, here’s how to turn it on.

1. Open the Settings app.

2. Tap “General” and then tap “Accessibility.”

3. Tap “AssistiveTouch” and then turn the feature on by tapping it at the top of the screen.

Now that AssistiveTouch is turned on, you need to choose a way to take screenshots. For example, you might want to take a screenshot anytime you double-tap the AssistiveTouch dot that hovers on the screen. To do that, tap “Double-Tap” and choose “Screenshot.” You’ve now assigned screenshots to the double-tap gesture. Tap “Back” and you’re now ready to take screenshots.

To take a screenshot, arrange the iPhone’s screen and then double-tap the AssistiveTouch dot. You’ll see a screenshot get captured, and you’ll find the image in your Photos app.

Huawei folding phone(Mate X) reappears to boast 5G speed

Published

on

By

Since the start of problems Huawei with the United States, many users who have thought about the launch of Mate X. The Huawei phone with folding screen had planned to reach the market this June, and doubts about its release do not stop creating as the days pass. Where is Mate X?

First 5G tests with the Huawei Mate X

The latest clues come with official information, as the president of the Huawei smartphones branch has shared some images in which you can see some speed tests carried out with the famous phone with a folding screen. The images reveal that the maximum speed reached in the tests of Speedtest reached 1 gigabit per second, while the rise was at 100 megabytes per second.

This is undoubtedly excellent news for those interested in knowing about the first Huawei folding phone. We hope that the program runs its course and this same month when we see the phone for sale (even if only in China), although it is clear that the doubts will continue on which licenses will be affected when marketing it and, basically, what such will respond the screen to everyday use, something that as we could see did not sit well at the option of Samsung.

On the other hand, Gang assured that the speeds obtained in the laboratory tests reached the figure of 1.2 Gbps, so technically the phone is able to reach higher cruising speed, although we are very much afraid that in conditions normal the result will be similar to that of the video. At this point, there is no doubt that the 5G is tremendously fast, right?

Embedded video

The mobile download speed can surpass 1 Gbps using the #5G network, He Gang, head of Huawei’s smartphone unit proved in a vlog with Huawei’s foldable Mate X handset on Tuesday.

Huawei mate x 5g testing using a customized Android version?

Taking a deeper look at the video, we can see how this unit of Mate X has a home screen where no icon of any application belonging to Google appears . It is something that could simply be a measure not to promote the company that has left out, a simple custom configuration or something even more complex, are we facing a version of Android customized by Huawei ?

This last option is the most rocambolesque, but there is another detail that is equally suspect: why is a virtual start button placed on the screen? Until now, the device had been showing the lower status bar with the classic buttons of Android, and in the case of not showing it, an upward gesture would be enough for it to reappear. As we said, these are suspicious details that generate enough doubts about the version of the operating system that is running the device, but for now, we will turn a blind eye and focus only on the results of the 5G tests.

Huawei EMUI 9 with Android 9 Pie rolls out to Huawei P10, Mate9

Published

on

By

There’s a lot of uncertainty swirling around Huawei at the moment and it goes beyond whether it’ll be able to make new phones in the future. Even now, owners of its existing phones are worried about the company’s capabilities to continue supporting existing phones. As if to reassure its customers, Huawei is now boasting how its EMUI 9 Android Pie experience is now on more than 80 million devices. What’s more, it’ll be rolling out to the Huawei P10 and even the Huawei Mate 9.

We’ll spare you from having to perform manufacturers’ odd math. Both running on the HiSilicon Kirin 960 chip, the Huawei P10 launched in early 2017 and the Mate 9 launched even further back in late 2016. By usual market standards, the phones are quite old. By usual OEM practices, they wouldn’t even be getting any updates at all.

And yet Huawei is boasting how it’s making EMUo 9 available to these two phones, giving them Android 9 Pie when some of their contemporaries have yet to receive it, if at all. So far, the update has only been made available to a few phone series, starting with the Mate 10 and P20, the Mate RS, and the Nova 3.

The announcement is also a show of power and force. Huawei boasts EMUI 9 will be reaching more than 100 million devices by the end of the month, revealing how many of its phones there are in the wild, not counting Honor devices. It is also trying to prove that, contrary to public perception, it can push out massive updates of its own.

Some might also see it as Huawei’s parting gift and haste. By making sure its older phones are running on the latest Android version, it gives itself more time to polish its “ArkOS” replacement. And by rushing to push the update before the month ends, it gives itself enough time to make those massive changes before the 90-day reprieve is up.

First New Apple’s iPod Model Unveiled After Four Years

Published

Apple presented the first new iPod model in four years on Tuesday as it continued to make a priority of serving up digital content.Advertise With Us

Concise News understands that the new-generation iPod touch, essentially an iPhonewithout the phone calls, was available in more than two dozen countries at Apple’s online shop starting at $199.

According to the vice president of product marketing Greg Joswiak, he said;  “We’re making the most affordable iOS device even better with the performance that is twice as fast as before, Group FaceTime and augmented reality,” said Apple

“The ultra-thin and lightweight design of iPod touch has always made it ideal for enjoying games, music and so much more wherever you go.”

The iPod touch evolved from the original iPod digital music player first launched by Apple in 2007.

The iPod touch became popular with people, particularly parents of internet-coveting children, who wanted mobile devices for getting online without the cost of telecommunications services.

The mobile devices can connect to the internet using Wi-Fi hotspots.

Apple earlier this year unveiled streaming video plans along with news and game subscription offerings as part of an effort to shift its focus to digital content and services to break free of its reliance on iPhone sales.

The first new iPod since the year 2015 comes as Apple shifts to emphasize digital content and other services to offset a pullback in the once-sizzling smartphone market, and with many news organizations struggling to monetize their online services.
