There is a function in iOS that allows us to take a screenshot to “Full Page”. That is a screenshot that not only shows the content that is displayed on the iPhone or iPad screen but also what is above or below, allowing all the content to be saved in the same image.
This feature available on iOS and iPadOS allows you to take full screen captures when you are viewing a web page, an email, or viewing a file. So it is compatible with Safari, Mail, and the Files app.
Taking a screenshot on the iPhone 12, and on the iPhone without a Home button, is done in a different way than the previous iPhone. And since some versions of iOS, we can take a full-screen capture of a web page, mail, or file.
How to take a screenshot of a complete website on the iPhone or iPad?
It is a more than interesting function, which also allows us to save the screenshot in PDF format, which you can share very easily. To take this full-screen capture, you must follow these steps.
- On your iPhone or iPad, go to Safari, Mail, or Files.
- Find the web page, email, or file you want to capture in full screen.
- Take a normal screen capture, pressing the side button and the volume up or Home button at the same time.
- Click on the preview that appears at the bottom left.
- In the upper area, tap on Full Page.
- Click on Ok and Save PDF in Files.
Before saving the PDF, you can make markup and hint at it by swiping through the screenshot, which can be really helpful. You can also select the place where you want to save the PDF of the full page capture you have made. Then from the Files app, you can locate it to share or save it.
It is one of those unknown functions of the Apple operating system that can solve daily problems, in addition to helping us to be more productive by being able to send a single capture instead of several. It is a native feature of both iOS and iPad.
