Get the most out of your new iPhone or iPad. In this course, Garrick Chow provides in-depth instruction on all aspects of the Apple iPhone and iPad: making and receiving calls, emailing, browsing the web, managing your time, getting around town, taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. Plus, learn how to install any one of the thousands of apps from the App Store and extend the functionality of your device. Garrick devotes time to the new features in iOS 7, including iCloud Keychain, Control Center, AirDrop, and new Photos organization. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations of how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and includes tips for setting up the iPhone and iPad so they behave as expected. We also include an extensive section on troubleshooting help when the occasional glitches happen.
Sometimes the photo you want to shoot on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch is of the screen itself. Maybe an app is acting strangely. Maybe you just hit the high score on a game you're playing and you want evidence of your achievement to send to your friends. Maybe you want to use a still frame from a movie or TV show you're watching as your iPhone's wallpaper. The point is that it's very easy to take a screenshot of whatever is on your device's screen. Let's say, I'm out here in sunny California where the weather is warm and pleasant. Meanwhile, back home on the east coast, my friends are freezing in the cold and snow. I want to send them a photo of the current temperature out here which I'm sure they will enjoy seeing. I'll open the Weather app and the weather looks fine. So, to take a screenshot. Hold down the sleep-wake and then press the Home button.
The screen flashes white and you hear the little camera shutter sound and that's it. Now alternately, you can also press and hold the Home button first and then press the Sleep/Wake button to take the shot As long as both buttons are being pressed down at some point the screenshot will happen. To see my screenshot, I go to my Photo Library. And here in my Camera Roll are the two screenshots I just took. And at this point I could email this photo or send it off via an MMS text message, or I could grab the image from my computer after I sync my phone to iTunes. Basically I now have a nice sharp image of my screen that I can do anything with. And that's how you take a still image of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch's screen.
