About screenshots, both iPad Pro 2020 and iPad Pro 2018 work similarly. Similarly, the buttons are positioned in the same place on both devices.

Step 1:

Look for the power button at the top right corner of your iPad, which is the total power button. The volume up button is also located near the power button. (This is not to be confused with your iPad’s volume down button) which is found on the right side of your device.

Step 2:

In addition to the power button, press the volume up button simultaneously. The buttons don’t have to be held simultaneously. You have to click them simultaneously. The iPad Pro screen will instantly flash if you do this correctly. If you don’t have your tablet set to silent, you will also hear faint shutter noise.

How do you find your screenshots on the iPad Pro?

The photo will be automatically saved to the camera roll in the Photos app once you have completed Step 2 and captured the Screenshot. By clicking the Photo App, you will have your Screenshot, and you will be able to see and share it with anyone you want. Not too tricky, is it?

Taking a screenshot on iPad Air and iPad Mini

The process is slightly different than taking a screenshot with an iPad Pro because an iPad Air or an iPad Mini has a home button. Taking a screenshot does not require you to press the volume button. For both devices, you press the shutter button.

Step 1:

There will be two buttons required: the home button and the power button on top of your device. The Screenshot points out both buttons.

Step 2:

You now need to click on both buttons at the same time. Then you only have to connect them simultaneously, not hold them. You will see the screen of your iPad Mini or iPad Air flash instantly if you follow these instructions correctly. When your device isn’t in silent mode, you’ll also hear a faint shutter noise.
