When a screenshot is taken from your iOS 11 enabled iPhone, a thumbnail preview appears in the corner for a few seconds. This allows users to immediately edit and share the image by simply tapping on the thumbnail. Personally, I find the new feature very convenient and think it will come very handy in many cases.

Those who don’t plan to share the screenshot right away or are just taking it for their personal use find the ‘thumbnail preview’ feature a bit of a nuisance. Unfortunately, the users would be disappointed to know that the thumbnail preview feature is here to stay and Apple has failed to include a way to toggle this new system on and off.
