We’ll show you how.
If you’ve ever wanted to show someone your CarPlay setup, or how to use certain CarPlay features, screenshots are a great way to do that — especially during these times of social distancing.<!– –>
And the good news is that if you know how to take screenshots on iPhone, you already know how to take screenshots on CarPlay.
How to take a screenshot on CarPlay
These are the steps you need to follow:
- Plug your iPhone into your car to start CarPlay.
- Navigate to the screen, app, or feature you want to capture.
- Snap a screenshot on your iPhone. On devices with Face ID, press the volume up and sleep/wake buttons. On devices with Touch ID, press the Home and sleep/wake buttons.
This will send two screenshots to your Camera Roll — one from iPhone and one from CarPlay. You can then edit, annotate, and share from the Photos app.
Sadly, it’s not possible to capture a CarPlay screenshot without also capturing an iPhone screenshot. But we don’t mind that given how easy this is. It certainly beats remembering a new screenshot shortcut.
