After updating to the iOS 10, many iOS users have reported that their screenshot capturing functionality is broken. These users are no longer able to take screenshots on their iOS devices running iOS 10.

If you are someone who takes a lot of screenshots and then finds that this feature is broken in iOS 10, then you must be frustrated and looking for ways to resolve the issue. Even restarting the device does not seem to be resolving the issue and neither does restoring the device with iTunes.

Since nothing seems to be working to resolve the issue, you must be disappointed and regretting why you updated your device in the first place. Well, since now there is no way to go back, either you can live with a broken feature or you can try some of the following fixes and see if that resolves the issue for you.

Way 1: Force Restart the Device

Instead of just restarting the device, what you can do is force restart your device.

Doing so is extremely easy as all you need to do to force reboot your device is press and hold the Home and Power buttons together for a few seconds and your device should proceed to force reboot.

When it boots-up, try to take a screenshot and you will find that you are now able to capture screenshots on your device.

If that did not work for you, you need to try the following.

Way 2: Use Assistive Touch to Take Screenshots

Another way to capture screenshots on an iOS device is to use Assistive Touch feature. It lets you capture a screenshot right off your phone’s screen.

You need to first enable the Assistive Touch feature on your device before you can use it. To do that, head to Menu > Settings > General > Accessibility and turn on the Assistive Touch feature.

Then, tap on the Assistive Touch icon on your screen, select Device followed by More. Then, tap on the icon that says Screenshot and a screenshot will be captured on your device.

That should have resolved the issue for you and you should now be able to take as many screenshots on your device as you want.
