Screen Capture with iPhone
Since the last blog post was on turning off LivePhoto on the iPhone, I thought I’d continue the iPhone topic and show you AssistiveTouch. An alternate method for taking a screen capture with iPhone. The usual method is a two-button press, easy for many, but I have quite a few clients who can’t get that two-button press synchronized. It’s frustrating for them. So, in my search for a solution I discovered “AssistiveTouch” in the Accessibility feature. There are so many features in iPhones and Macs we generally don’t need or use because we’re comfortable with tech and familiar with our iPhones. But there comes a time when we need a little help. Here’s a case where I’m finding this feature very useful myself.
AssistiveTouch helps you if you have difficulty pressing the buttons or touching the screen. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s or issues like trigger finger, which I have, are a few reasons to know how to use AssistiveTouch. It does more than screen capture with iPhone, but I’m going to keep things simple and show you how to do a screen capture. Once you have that set up, you will want to give the other options a try.
The video below shows you how to set up AssistiveTouch, how to place the AssistiveTouch button and use it to take a screen capture with iPhone.
