Taking partial screenshots on the Apple iPhone 12 is a great way to capture only the most important parts of your screen. Whether you want to share a specific part of an image or document, or just want to save time by not having to take multiple screenshots, this guide will show you how.

1. Open the app or page that you would like to take a partial screenshot of.

3. Tap on “Screen” in the bottom left corner of your display (it should appear after taking your screenshot). This will open up an editing window with various tools for customizing your screenshot.
4. Select “Full Page” from the top right corner if it is not already selected, then tap on “Done” in the top left corner when finished editing (you can also select other options such as crop, draw, text etc.).
5. Tap and drag one of the corners of your selection box until it covers only what you would like included in your partial screenshot (you can also adjust its size by dragging any side). When finished adjusting its size, tap “Done” again in order to save it as an image file onto Photos app or other cloud storage services such as iCloud Drive or Dropbox etc..
