Under certain circumstances, your iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max can be but also refuse the screenshot. But this doesn’t have to be because you used the key combination for the feature incorrectly. Some apps prohibit the capture. Mostly this is done for security reasons. For example, this can be the case with banking apps.
You can also take screenshots not always without the knowledge of other users make. Instagram, for example, is known for a corresponding feature. As soon as you take a screenshot of a chat with another person, click on "Done", the app informs the conversation partner. With Snapchat, photo creators get a notification when you take a screenshot of their work.

But what if you want to take a screenshot of, say, a web page that you’re doesn’t fit completely on your display, want to take a screenshot? While many Android smartphones allow so-called scrolling screenshots out of the factory, it looks different with Apple. You have to press with an iOS device on Third-party apps like Tailor access. The program creates several screenshots and then automatically merges them into a single one. This is useful for longer web pages and texts.
If, on the other hand, you only want to save a screenshot, you can do it right after you create it in edit mode. If you send the shot via WhatsApp, you can also send the picture with your iPhone Xs or Xs Max Crop directly before sending via Messenger. However, a copy of the clipping is not stored separately on your iPhone.
