Ever since the Apple event, people are holding back their millions of questions about the new phones and tech introduced but what’s really been the hot topic is the iPhone X. As we have seen, the iPhone X sports an edge-to-edge display and Apple has removed its classic circular home button.

Screenshots are a vital feature of every smartphone as they allow sharing moments from your favorite videos, moments on the game, conversations on social networks like Twitter or Facebook (well, that’s sometimes not the best thing for those in trouble), bugs that you have to report and almost everything you see on your screen. Traditionally, the method that was implemented was clicking on both the Home and Power buttons. But with the introduction of the iPhone X, the Home button has been abandoned. So, how does one go about the process of capturing the screen now?
1. How to Take a Screenshot on iPhone X

- Press and hold the Power button that is present on the right side.
- Click the Volume Up button along with the Power button at the same time. (As you can see, this has replaced the Home button step from previous iPhone).
