Taking a screenshot with your iPhone is surely second nature, but what about capturing everything on a website, PDF, email, note, or stitching together numerous screenshots? Continue reading to learn how to snap a scrolling screenshot on an iPhone.
Taking a scrolling screenshot on an iPhone used to require the usage of a third-party app.
However, on Apple’s first-party apps, you can now do this natively with websites, PDFs, the Notes app, emails, and more.
We’ll also look at how to accomplish this with third-party app content.
How to take a scrolling screenshot on iPhone?
Taking a scrolling screenshot or “Full Page” screenshot in Apple’s applications generates a PDF of everything in a document, website, note, or email.
- Take a screenshot (press the side or top button and volume up button at the same time)
- Tap the preview in the bottom left corner before it disappears
- Choose the Full Page option in the top right corner
- The Full Page option will only appear in instances where there is more than one page worth of content on-screen
- You can preview all the pages, use markup, and more before saving
- You can also tap the crop icon (square-ish icon next to “Done”) to edit what part of the Full Page you’d like to save
- Tap either Done in the top-left corner to save or the share button in the top right
Third-party apps for scrolling screenshots on iPhone
Another option is using an app like Picsew or Tailor to take scrolling screenshots of material within third-party applications or for more manual control (saved as PNG, etc.).
Picsew has a better average rating, but both are suited for the iPhone 12/13 and older iPhones.
Both may be tried out for free before purchasing the full versions through in-app purchase.
