How To Take a Scrolling Screenshot on iPhone/iPad

April 12, 2021

Capture more than just what you’re seeing on screen.

Taking screenshots on smartphones is now a common task. On the iPhone and the iPad, taking a screenshot is as easy as pressing a couple of buttons at the same time. But there’s a catch, the screen you’re taking mostly just captures that’s shown on screen and not necessarily the entire page.

Previously, you would have to utilize a third party to capture scrolling screenshots, but the latest version of iOS changes this process, since you can now take a scrollable, full-page screenshot on both the iPhone and iPad.

With this feature now natively supported, here are the steps on how you can capture a scrolling screenshot on your iPhone or iPad. Note that you must have the latest version of iOS to be able to do this.

Take a screenshot using the traditional method (press the side button + volume up button/home button + side button depending on the model).

Tap the preview on the lower left side of the screen.

On the preview window, select the ‘Full Page’ option.

From there, you can crop or do markups on the screenshot before saving it.

Tap Done and select where the file will be saved.
