Screenshot scribbles: Here’s a life hack that most wished they knew. That’s if you don’t already know it by now. It’s a screenshot hack to get rid of those scribbles when sending a screenshot to a recipient.

How to use it?

On iOS

On iPhone with a home button. Press and hold side button and home key simultaneously.

Save to photos, or select preferred folder, then done.


Make the shape or direction you want to use as reference.

Hold down the shape or arrow with your finger after drawing it and it will smoothen out.

Avoid those messy looking screenshots when you want to make that much needed point.

Users with the iPhone 14 or Pro Max can use the dynamic island feature, which will be visible in screenshots.

It is still unclear when Apple made the addition, but it sure has come in handy.

On Android
