For iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, or iPad Pro (2017 and older)

Verify the image, webpage, or other visual media you're hoping to capture is fully displayed, or launch the app (or apps in split view) you want to screenshot.

Press and hold Sleep/Wake (on/off) button on the top of your iPad. Quickly click Home button at the bottom of the screen.

  1. Holding down two buttons at the same time is not an easy task. If you hold down Home button first, but not fast enough to press Sleep/Wake (on/off) button, you may activate your Siri first.
  2. In the event of you press and hold Sleep/Wake (on/off) button for too long and press Home button fast enough, the screen will show slide to power off button.
  3. If you don't want the screenshot thumbnail to linger on your screen, you can Swipe left on the thumbnail to dismiss them.
  4. If you want to share your screenshots ,you can press the Share button and choose the option you want in the Share Sheet. After sending, tap on the thumbnail and press Done.

For iPad Pro (2018)

The 2018 model iPad Pro does not have a Home button, therefore uses a different set of buttons for taking a screenshot on iPad Pro.

Set up the view exactly the way you want it for the shot. Verify the image, webpage, or other visual media you're hoping to capture is fully displayed.

Press the Sleep/Wake (on/off)  button on the top of the iPad Pro and the Volume up button on the right side of the iPad Pro at the same time.

Method 2: How to Take A Screenshot on iPad Mini/Air/Pro Using Assistive Touch

There is also a way to take a screenshot on iPad Mini/Air/Pro which has a size of more than 7.9 inches with just one hand, but this requires an auxiliary enabling Assistive Touch.

Enable Assistive Touch

Launching the Settings app and navigating to General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch and toggle Assistive Touch ON. A semi-transparent button will be added to your screen. This is the Assistive Touch button.

Customize Top Level Menu

Tap on the Customize Top Level Menu. Then tap the Custom icon (the one with the star), and select Screenshot from the list. The Screenshot button will be added to the Assistive Touch Menu. You can also tap on any of the default icons to replace it with Screenshot button, or any other option from the list.

Take Screenshot With Assistive Touch

With the Screenshot option added to your Assistive Touch menu, we can take a one-handed screenshot anytime by tapping on the Assistive Touch button followed by Screenshot button.

And just like before, the screen will flash white, you'll hear the camera shutter sound (if your iPad isn't on mute), and your screenshot will be saved in Photos.

2. How to Find Your Screenshots on iPad Mini/Air/Pro

All the screenshots you take on your iPad mini will be saved in the Screenshots album in the Photos app. This album is auto-created by iOS and all screenshots you take will be automatically added to it.

If you skip Instant Markup, you can still access your screenshots, edit, annotate and share them at any time.

Press Sleep/Wake (on/off) button to wake up your iPad screen.

Launch Photos app from your Home screen.

Tap on Albums.

Tap on Screenshots.

You can also use photo editor to edit screenshots on iPad, share screenshots on social networking services, save screenshots to a cloud hosting service, post to your blog, or transfer screenshots from iPad to other devices.


Screenshots captured on iPad will be saved to your photo album on the device. You can manage them the same as other photos on iPad. If you accidentally deleted screenshots, you can refer to this guide to recover lost photos and videos on iPad.
