Continuing on, I’ll now discuss the specifics of taking a screenshot on an iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation). To capture the screen, press the Power button and the Volume Up button simultaneously. This will immediately take a screenshot and save it to your Photos library.

Instructions for 11in

Taking a screenshot on an iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd Generation) is easy! There are two ways to do it: either by using the Home button, or if you don’t have that, by using the Assistive Touch. For those with an Apple Pencil, there is also a way to take screenshots using that.

Using Home Button

Press and quickly release the Home button to take a screenshot on your 11-inch Ipad Pro (2nd Generation). To use AirPlay mirroring, press and hold the Home button and then press the Volume Up button. This will enable you to share what’s on your Ipad’s screen to another device. You can also use gesture control to capture a screenshot. Simply press and hold the Side button and then press the Volume Up button at the same time. This will take a picture of your Ipad screen and save it to Photos. There’s no need to worry about missing a screenshot because you can always use either AirPlay mirroring or gesture control to quickly capture it.

No Home Button

On 11-inch Ipad Pros (2nd Generation) without a Home button, taking a screenshot is a little different; to capture one, simultaneously press and hold the Side button and the Volume Up button. This will capture what’s currently on your screen and save it to your Photos app. With the lack of a Home button, gesture navigation will be important for home screen customization. To access the App Switcher, you have to swipe up from the bottom of the screen and hold until the App Switcher appears. To return to the Home screen, you have to swipe up from the bottom of the screen and then pause in the middle of the screen. With these gestures, you can easily customize and navigate your Ipad Pro 11-inch.

"Using Pencils"

My Ipad Pro 11-inch’s Pencil is great for taking quick screenshots of whatever I’m working on. It has both standard and specific functions designed to capture the screen quickly. It can be used to mark up screenshots with pencils’ functions like erasing, drawing, and highlighting. I can even add text, shapes, and magnifiers to screenshots with the pencils’ features. With just a few taps, I can easily capture the entire screen or a portion of it. I love the convenience and accuracy of using the pencil to capture screenshots on my Ipad Pro 11-inch. It’s a great way to quickly capture whatever I’m working on without having to navigate through a bunch of menus.

Edit & Share Screenshots

Once you’ve taken a screenshot on your iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation), you’ll want to know how to edit and share it. Editing tools like markup, text, and magnifier let you highlight and modify the screenshot to your liking. Once you’ve edited the image, you can quickly share it with the various sharing options available. You can easily send the image via email, upload it to a cloud service, or share it on social media. With the freedom to customize and share your screenshots, you can express yourself however you want.

"Pro Tips"

In addition to learning the basics of taking screenshots on your iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation), there are a few pro tips to make the process even easier. First, when saving your screenshots, make sure to save them in a place that is easily accessible. This could be a cloud storage service, a folder on your iPad, or even an external hard drive. Also, when taking screenshots, be sure to keep the iPad in the same orientation as when you took the screenshot. This will ensure that the image is clear and will not be distorted.
