Taking a screenshot on iPad is simple for users and you have two ways to capture a given screen. Below is how to take a screenshot on iPad tablets and share the snap to your colleagues or friends.
The oval-shaped Home button resides just below the iPad display and the Sleep/Wake button to the device’s right-hand corner. To take manual screenshots on the iPad, press the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously. This is the most common way to take a screenshot on iPad, but there is another method to do that as well.
You can enable a feature tucked away in the iOS settings to alternatively capture a given screen on iPad tablets. For that, navigate to Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch and ensure you turn ON the switch to enable AssistiveTouch and take a screenshot on iPad tablets.
Tap on the AssistiveTouch menu button and navigate to Device > More to capture the device screen as a PNG file. Your device will flash momentarily, and you would hear a shutter noise as well when the screenshot gets captured. Assuming the iPad is not in silent mode, the screenshot shutter will be audible to you.
To share the screenshot, navigate to the Photos app in iOS and then open the screenshot you just captured. To share the selected PNG file from iPad, tap on the navigated photo and then tap on the Share icon when the photo enlarges.
Then, select the social media handle you intend to share the screenshot or the corresponding AirDrop or email icon on the device screen. You can also share the screenshot with a colleague or friend nearby via the AirDrop feature in iOS 7 by turning on the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth on the device.
Screenshots will come in handy when you want to show a captured image of the tablet screen. The iPad tablets are sleek and are ideal for daily usage as well as for productivity applications. The screenshot will also come in handy when you are in a gaming session on an iPad refurbished tablet.
