Take a Scrolling Screenshot on iPhone Using iOS 12/13 New Feature

With iOS 12 or iOS 13, there are a few new tricks to take a scrolling screenshot on iPhone by using Siri Shortcuts and other apps. Read on to check it out.

Updated Jun 16,2020 | by Cody

Have you ever want to take a scrolling screenshot on your iPhone? iOS 13 allows you to take a full page screenshot in Safari. However, on iOS 12, there is still no built-in feature available to take a long screenshot on your iPhone or iPad. Don’t worry. In this article, I will show you a few workarounds to get a long screenshot of a web page, conversations, to-do lists, etc.

Full-Screen Capture in One Step with Siri Shortcuts

Sometimes you want to capture an entire webpage on your iPhone. In iOS 13, Safari allows you to take a full page screenshot by itself. You can press the key combination as you normally do to take a screenshot, for example, Volume Up + Power key for iPhone X. Then you can tap on the screenshot for preview and select the Full Page tab to save the full page screenshot. 

If you are using iOS 12, iPhone does not include the Scrolling Screenshot feature, so your choice would be capturing multiple screenshots and combining them together. That’s very tedious, not to mention you may have to edit each screenshot.

As you know Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12 allows you to automate many tasks. Therefore, you can use the Shortcuts app to automate the process. With it, you can just run a shortcut to take a screenshot of an entire webpage.

First, you need to get this Shortcuts app, of course. If you haven’t already, you have missed a lot of great features. Then you get this shortcut WebSaver+. If you are familiar with Shortcuts app, then you can create a new shortcut to make a PDF out of a web page then convert the PDF to an image.

Actually, you do not even have to open the webpage in order to take a full screenshot of it by using this shortcut. You can just copy the URL of the page you want to take a full shortcut of and run this shortcut.

The shortcut will automatically get the content of the webpage and create a photo for you to view. You can tap Share button to bring out the Share Sheet. If you do not want to share it right away, tap Done and select to Save the image to Camera Roll or iCloud. You can also manually select another cloud drive connected to the Files app.

Combine Multiple Screenshots – Auto Remove Status Bar

If you want to take a scrolling screenshot of other things rather than a webpage, you can also use a different shortcut to stitch multiple screenshots together. This should be the best free method available on your iPhone.

You can follow the steps below to see how it works.

Step 1. Get this shortcut. You should open this link in Safari or Firefox to get the shortcut. Otherwise, you will be redirected to AppStore.

Step 2. Within the Shortcuts app, run the shortcut.

Step 3. Select a few screenshots that you want to combine.

Step 4. Instantly, it will allow you to preview the combined screenshot. If you are not satisfied with this results, you can select the option to adjust the parameters.

Step 5. You can change the width by using one of the selected images, change the order, or auto remove the top status bar.

Step 6. After that, you will have a complete long screenshot. Now you can choose to Save the image to Camera Roll and delete the original images.

iOS App for Taking Scrolling Screenshots

There is also a dedicated app called Scrolling Tailor for taking long screenshots on iPhone, totally free with ads. You will need to use this app to record the screenshot while you scroll and this app will convert to recorded video to a scrolling screenshots. 

Step 1. Install the Scrolling Tailor app on your iPhone or iPad.

Step 2. Long press the Recorder button from Action Center to start a screen record on your iPhone and select Scrolling Tailor.

Step 3. Go back to the page where you want to take a scrolling screenshot before the recording starts. Then start scroll. 

Step 4. Open Scrolling Tailor app and you will see the scrolling screenshot. Then you can tap the Save button to save the scrolling screenshot to Camera Roll. 

Best Screenshot Stitcher App for iPhone

If you do not like the Shortcuts option, there is another app called Picsew that also allows you to take a long screenshot on iPhone by combining them vertically. It will automatically combine them and remove duplicated parts.

Sometimes, it may remove the wrong part of the screenshot. Luckily, this app also enables you to manually edit the images. You can edit the width and height of each image you select to combine.

You can get this app for 0.99 from AppStore. If you want to pay for an app do this kind of job, then you can use the Tailor app, which is free with ads, and of course, you can also pay to remove ads.

Of these two apps, I found that Picsew works better because Tailor has failed a few times for fetching all the related screenshots when creating a scrolling screenshot on iPhone. I have to force stop the app and try it again. Other than that, the Tailor app works great.

With all these methods for taking long screenshots on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, which one do you think is the most effective? If you have an even better method to take a scrolling screenshot, you are very welcome to share it in the comments below.
