How to Screenshot an Entire Web Page on iPhone

(Pocket-lint) – There are plenty of iPhone tips out there – many of which you can read about in our iPhone tips and tricks feature – but every once in a while a really good one pops up that deserves its own feature.

Turning the Apple logo – or the center of the back of your iPhone – into a secret button is one of them, but did you know you can also capture an entire webpage in one go?

This nifty little trick lets you capture the entire Pocket-lint homepage with a single screenshot, after which you can then scroll using a scrollbar and save as PDF to view it offline.

It’s brilliant. Truly. Here’s how.

How to Take a Scrolling Screenshot of an Entire Web Page

Taking a screenshot of an entire web page for easy browsing, cropping if desired, and saving as a PDF is very easy – once you know how.

  1. Open the web page you want to capture in your browser
  2. Press the Side button and volume up on a Face ID iPhone or the Side button and Home button on Touch ID iPhones
  3. The screenshot you took will appear in the lower left corner
  4. Tap the screenshot in the corner before it disappears
  5. You will be taken to the editing screen where you can annotate the screenshot, crop it, share it, delete it, etc.
  6. At the top of the editing screen are two tabs: Screen and Full Page. Press Full Page.
  7. On the side when you are in the Full Page tab, you will see a scroll bar
  8. You can then scroll the web page using the scroll bar
  9. Tap “Done” in the top left corner
  10. You can then choose to delete the screenshot or save it as a PDF

The fourth step is very important because you won’t be able to see the Full Screen option in the edit screen unless you tap the screenshot in the lower left corner before it disappears. This is not an option if you open a screenshot of your photos.

It should also be noted that you can crop the captured web page by tapping the crop icon in the Full Screen tab. This will display the entire webpage, allowing you to crop from the bottom or the top.
