There are two ways to take a screenshot on iPhones. And which way you can use totally depends on the version of the iPhone you use. The most recent or newer ones have a different way. And then the older models like iPhone SE or iPhone 8 and even older models have a different way. 

The reason for that is newer models like iPhone 11, iPhone XR or iPhone 12 series models do not have a home button anymore. But the older models like iPhone 8, iPhone SE, and older versions, do have a home button. So you can take a screenshot on your iPhone with and without the help of the home button.

If you have been confused about how to do it for some time now, let us clarify it. Here are two ways you can take a screenshot on your iPhone (how to screenshot on iPhone).
