Apple introduced the ability to take full page, or scrolling, screenshots in Safari with iOS 13. In addition to web pages, users can take a full page screenshot in the iPhone Notes app and iPad Notes app. This means that, rather than capturing only the section of the note that's visible on your display, you'll now be able to do a full page screen capture on your iPhone or iPad. Let's get started learning how to screenshot a whole note on your iPhone or iPad. You can use this tip to learn how to take a full page screenshot on the iPhone SE (first generation) and later models, including the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone 11, and the iPhone 12 series. You can also take a full page screengrab in the Notes app with the Pad Air 2 and later, all iPad Pro models, the iPad 5th generation and later, and the iPad mini 4 and later.
