Ever wanted to take a screenshot of an entire webpage on your iPhone? Well, guess what - you can! Introduced in iOS 13, the Safari browser (sorry if you use another browser) can capture the entire page and save this as a PDF. Neet!
How to take a screenshot on iPhone
If you have never taken a screenshot on your iPhone, you are clearly missing out! Depending on how you have your phone configured and the model there are a couple of methods to do this.
Take a screenshot on iPhone X and newer
- Press the Volume Up and Side (Power) button together.
Take a screenshot on iPhone 6s/ iPhone 7/ iPhone 8
- Press the Home button and the Power button together.
Use "Back Tap" (introduced in iOS 14)
iOS 14 introduced a very nifty feature which allows you to assign a function when you double (or triple) tap the back of your iPhone. One of these functions is to take a screenshot. This is particularly useful if you find pressing the buttons simultaneously difficult, or you are maybe use a case which might obstruct access.
How to capture the full page
Once you have followed the steps above, and the screenshot is taken, tap on the preview at the bottom left corner of the screen.
Upon tapping, the preview window becomes bigger and shows you two options - Screen and Full Page. Tap on Full Page.
As with any other screen shot you can use the tools available to annotate the page as you need. Once you are ready to save, simply click "Done" and you will be prompted to "Save PDF to Files".
Click this option, give the file a name (it defaults to the title of the web page) and select a location to save the file. Once saved, the file can be accessed via the "Files" app on your phone.
