How to Use the iPad’s Built-in Screen Capture Tool for Capturing Images and Videos

The iPad is a powerful device that can be used for a variety of tasks, including capturing images and videos. The iPad has a built-in screen capture tool that makes it easy to capture whatever is on the screen. This article will explain how to use the iPad’s built-in screen capture tool for capturing images and videos.

To begin, open the app or website you want to capture an image or video from. Once you have opened the app or website, press and hold down both the Home button (located at the bottom of your iPad) and Sleep/Wake button (located on top of your iPad) at the same time until you see a white flash appear on your screen. This indicates that your screenshot has been taken successfully.

Your screenshot will be saved in Photos > Albums > Screenshots folder in your Photos app. You can also access it by swiping left from any home page on your device and tapping “Screenshots” under “Albums” in Photos tab.

If you want to record a video instead of taking screenshots, open Control Center by swiping up from any home page on your device and tap “Screen Recording” icon located at bottom left corner of Control Center window (it looks like two concentric circles). A 3-second countdown timer will appear before recording begins; tap anywhere within this timer window to cancel recording if needed. To stop recording, press firmly (3D Touch) or long press (non 3D Touch devices) Screen Recording icon again in Control Center window until red status bar appears at top of display with Stop Recording option; tap Stop Recording option when prompted to end recording session successfully. Your recorded video will be saved in Photos > Albums > Videos folder in Photos app just like screenshots are stored there after being taken with built-in screen capture tool available on iPads running iOS 11 or later versions only as earlier versions do not support this feature natively without jailbreaking device first which is not recommended due to security risks associated with such practice so please make sure you are running latest version of iOS before attempting any such activities mentioned here today!
