As there is no Home button on iPhone X, how do you take a screenshot?
Swiping up from bottom of the screen while pressing the lock button?

    Folks, it's a legitimate question answerable by anybody who has a chance to play with one of the demo models. – nohillside Sep 12 '17 at 20:21

    "Hey Siri, take a screenshot"? – Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen Sep 13 '17 at 17:19
  • @ThorbjørnRavnAndersen That's way slower than using buttons. Not a great use for Siri. – ell Sep 13 '17 at 21:27
  • @sgroves also Siri cannot take screenshots. – Tim Sep 14 '17 at 0:30

Hold the Side button and tap Volume Up.

    But does it include a black bar on the top? – Derek 朕會功夫 Sep 13 '17 at 2:47

    @Derek朕會功夫 I’m curious about this too, so I asked a new question about it. – bdesham Sep 13 '17 at 3:16
  • I'm tempted to think I'd be taking a lot of accidental screenshots as I try to turn the phone off... on the 6S I often turn the volume up as I'm trying to do that :/ – Tetsujin Sep 13 '17 at 6:26

    @Tetsujin on the flip side, I wonder how many people will accidentally restart their phone attempting to do a screenshot? – Thebluefish Sep 13 '17 at 17:28

Two Methods i found on Google,

Method 1:

Using Press, Side Button + Volume Up button at once.

Source: Take a Screenshot on iPhone X: Alternate Ways

Method 2:

Using Assistive touch, Really great for use on lock screen, Home screen or App Screen.

  • I like the assistive touch recommendation, a good alternative to keep in mind if you're doing a lot of these. – Joe Sep 13 '17 at 17:50

One alternative way could be to use the new screen recording feature in iOS 11, and then from the video choose the image of choice.

    That seems like a horrific workaround... Screenshots are usually quick 'spur of the moment' things that you don't want to start a whole, storage-intensive, screen recording for. – Sarreph Sep 13 '17 at 12:32
  • And you extract the frame of the video which is correct how? – Tim Sep 14 '17 at 0:32

    Well as I also wrote it is an alternative way - maybe not the best, but still it is durable. When you have taken the video, you look it through, choose the image/frame you want with the app you want (it could be directly on the device, or transferred to a Mac/PC), from where you then store the image (some apps/tools let you do that). – Rene Larsen Sep 14 '17 at 6:52

You apparently can do it by pressing the sleep/wake and the volume up button at the same time. Nevertheless, you can still take a screenshot with Assistive Touch in settings.
