Unfortunately, when I use the AssistiveTouch Square on my screen to take a snapshot of my screen the square disappears to take the screenshot. So I have to explain it through text.

It's very easy to use. My power button is stuck so I use the AssistiveTouch. You just press on the square with the circle in it & it should have, Favorites, Voice Control, Device & Home buttons.

It expands out once you have clicked on it. But then click on Device. It will say rotate screen, lock screen, Volume up & Volume down & More. C

Click on Lock Screen & it will lock your screen or if you want to take a Screen Shot. Click on more & it should say Gestures, Screen Shot, Multitasking & Shake. Click on Screen Shot.

& There's your Screen Shot ! It does more. You can explore the AssistiveTouch & what else It can do. If you simply want to go back. There should be a little arrow in the middle & that's it.

If you have any questions about the AssistiveTouch or General iPhone questions just ask. I've been experimenting with the iPhone & found out many tricks to fix common problems. Enjoy !
