So many questions, so little time.

 

With the Home button gone, how am I supposed take a screenshot on my iPhone X?

 

 

 

‘Top notch’ ha gimme a break. Will the screenshots that I take have that ugly-ass notch in it?

 

 

 

With the Home button gone, do we need to get something like a freaking Lightning to Home Button Adapter kinda like this?

Look.

 

No one’s blaming you for asking these questions, when in fact, Apple’s the one that has not been entirely giving these answers.

 

That’s why this guide intends to help you answer some of those earlier questions which you’ve might had, before you get yourself into learning the ropes of iOS 11 and getting around understanding how your iPhone X truly works.

 

 

You can skip straight to the steps on how to take a screenshot on iPhone X if you’re as impatient as me. 🙂

 

 

 

But first …

 

 

 

 

Will Screenshots Have that Ugly Notch In it?

 

Currently as of now (where the iPhone X have not been released yet), we’re unsure on how screenshots will turn out and whether they would feature the notch in it as well. 

 

But there are two possibilities on how it could play out:

 

1.  Based on the iPhone X Simulator this is what it currently has to offer:

 

 

 

 

 

2.  On the other side, a few developers do not agree on this and instead they believe that the your screenshots will not show the notch:

 

 

 

 

Whichever way it might turn out to be, one thing is for sure and that is that there is still time until October 27th for Apple to address to these questions. 

 

But for now both you and I, we really need to wait and see.

That’s it! 🙂
