Taking scrolling screenshots on iPhone is not as easy as on Android. But these apps will make it easier and simpler. With iOS 13 and later, Apple allows the users to take scrolling screenshots but this only works on Safari and not with other apps like WhatsApp or Signal. However, this can be achieved with the help of a few apps.
First, let’s see how to take a scrolling screenshot on iPhone using the built-in tool, and then I will show you the best apps to take those screenshots on every other app.
How to take a scrolling screenshot on iPhone on Safari
It’s very simple and easy to do, just follow the below-mentioned steps.
- Take a screenshot by
- Pressing the volume up button and side button at the same time (for devices with notch)
- Pressing the home button and power button at the same time (for devices with a home button)
2. Once the screenshot has been taken, tap the small preview that will be shown at the bottom right or left corner to open the screenshot.
3. Tap the Full Page and you will get a preview of the entire webpage.
4. Finally, tap done and save the pic as a PDF file. Unfortunately, the screenshot can’t be saved as JPG or PNG.
How to take a scrolling screenshot on your iPhone for the apps such as WhatsApp or Signal.
Like I said before, iOS doesn’t allow you to take a scrolling screenshot on any apps other than the safari but these apps will likely get the job done in some other way. These are the three best apps to take scrolling screens on iPhone.
Picsew is the best option to take a scrolling screenshot on iPhone. However, the app won’t actually take the screenshot but stitch all the screenshots together making it look like a long scrolling shot (Probably all of the apps will follow the same procedure since it is the restriction from Apple). It might sound impossible but it actually works like a wonder.
It also consists of editing tools to edit the pic but it is not as good as other photo editing apps. You can also add watermarks and borders around the pic as per your need.
Another feature worth mentioning is the blur option, which can blur people’s faces if needed.
The app is free to download but it requires a $0.99 subscription to save the stitched images.
How to use the app
- Take several screenshots of the page you would like to take scrolling screenshots. Make sure to apply a small amount of scroll between each screenshot.
- Save the screenshots to the photos and open the Picsew app.
- The app will automatically detect the screenshot and stitch them all together. If not, you can select the images and tap screenshot to begin stitching.
Tailor is another screenshot capturing app for iPhone that takes scrolling screenshots. It works with all the apps such as WhatsApp, Twitter, or Facebook.
The Tailor app works the same way as Picsew with the same procedures and steps. But you can export images on the free version, which you can’t do on Picsew. However, the app will place a watermark on each screenshot.
The free version of the app will have a watermark and contain ads. The upgrade will cost $2.99 and remove both the watermark and the ads.
Like the other apps, the long pic collage maker combines multiple screenshots into one, giving it the appearance of a scrolling screenshot. You can either combine them vertically or horizontally. The app is free to download but requires a paid subscription to save the images. It costs $13, making it the most expensive app on our list. As well, the premium subscription offers cloud storage in case you want to save any of your images on the cloud.
Taking a scrolling screenshot on the iPhone is not so difficult. Scrolling screenshots are most commonly used for capturing web pages or long documents, and since that’s the case, we’ve gathered the best apps for taking scrolling screenshots.
However, taking a scrolling screenshot on safari doesn’t require any 3rd party apps since the native iOS screenshot app lets you take a screenshot of the whole page.
