Taking a screenshot on our mobile devices has become an important part of our often-daily routine. Whether it’s taking a picture of your social feed, sharing something weird happening on your phone, or just to take a screenshot on Snapchat,

When it comes to tablets, screenshots are equally important. So how exactly do you take an iPad screenshot? Actually the process is pretty simple, and thanking taking a screenshot on iPad pretty much stays the same regardless of whether you’re using an iPad Pro, Mini, or a standard iPad.

How to take a screenshot on an iPad

To take an iPad screenshot, you simply simultaneously depress the Home button and the power button.

If you are an Android user, you may be in the habit of holding the two buttons down until the screen flashes to verify the capture. Do not do this on your iPad. Press the buttons and release almost immediately to take your screenshot.

The screen will flash to verify your capture after the buttons are released. If you hold onto the buttons for too long, your iPad will simply power off.

The captured images will find their way into your Photo gallery. From there, you will be able to take advantage of the built-in tools to edit the images. Perhaps you wish to crop and rotate, then change the colors to grey-scale and apply red-eye correction, I mean, why wouldn’t you?!? I jest, of course, but there is a solid set of basic editing tools to get you by.

So that’s it! As you can seeing, taking a screenshot on your iPad is actually pretty easy.
