One of the coolest features on an iPhone is it’s ability to take pictures (screenshots) of the screen. I find myself wanting to do this frequently, especially with text messages.

If you want to take a picture of a text message on your iPhone, here’s all you have to do:

  • Press and hold the “Home” button (the big round button on the front of the screen)
  • Press the “Lock” button on the top right (the one that locks your phone and makes a “locking” sound when you press it)
  • That’s it—you’re done!

Your iPhone screen will flash and you’ll hear a shutter sound as the iPhone takes a picture of the screen. To find the photo you’ve just taken, go to your “Photos” app (the one with the Sunflower icon) and it will be saved as the most recent image under “Camera Roll.” Simple, eh? From there you can email it, text it to someone else or sync it with iPhoto.
