This hidden iPhone feature changes the way you take a screenshot

I write about phones for a living and have used an iPhone as my personal device for over a decade, but even I, in my infinite (read: very limited) mobile wisdom, occasionally fall victim to discovering a ‘how to’ didn’t I fucking know that?” iPhone feature.

This phenomenon is especially frustrating when it relates to something I do always on my iPhone, which in this case are screenshots. And boy, do I love a good screenshot. Whether it’s memes, outfits, Maps directions, shopping lists, social media profiles, or group chat interactions, my camera roll is full of one-off images that I’m either too lazy to delete or feel compelled to save from fear of needing them again in the future (that obscure Wallace and Gromit meme shall will come in handy someday!).
