You may be wondering how to capture a screenshot on your new iPhone now that the Home button on the iPhone 7 Plus has been replaced with a new pressure sensitive button powered by Taptic Engine.

Because of the built-in Taptic Engine, the new Home button is capacitive and offers you the experience and impression of a real Home button. However, it also means that the procedure for entering DFU mode or performing a Hard Reset will be different.

But what about capturing a screenshot? The procedure is similar to taking a screenshot on older iPhone models.
