High-quality Screenshots from an iPhone


I was reading my favourite magazine, MacUser and came across this Q and A in the letter page


We need to produce reports with screenshots of iPhones and iPads. How do you get such high-quality ones?


All iOS devices -iPod, iPhone and iPad – will take screenshots when. you press the sleep/wake button in and, while thats held, press the Home button.

The resulting screenshot, in PNG format, is then placed into Photos, and be emailed can to yourself,  transferred back using another method or on synchronisation.

They are superior to anything produced by photographing the screen.

I used Prizmo on my iPhone to take a picture of the letter and use OCR to convert the image to text format.
