Apple’s upcoming software update, iOS 11, has tons of new improvements, especially on the iPad.
One of my favorite new features is the new screenshot tool, which lets you edit your screenshots before saving or sharing them. You can also set screenshots to automatically delete after sharing so they don’t clog up your camera roll. I’ve been testing iOS 11 for the last few days, and this has quickly become one of the features I use the most.
Here’s how it works. I used an iPad Pro for this, but it’s pretty much the same on the iPhone too.
When you take a screenshot, a thumbnail of the image pops up in the lower left corner. Tap it to open the editor. (You can also swipe it away to save the image directly to your camera roll.)
From there, you have loads of great options:
Here’s the screenshot editor. You’ll notice the Apple Pencil tools on the bottom if you’re using an iPad Pro.
You can crop the image.
You can also doodle over the image.
