What is Apple CarPlay

You can activate your Siri voice control or you can set your car buttons and knobs to control your CarPlay. It means that you take control of both your car and your iPhone while your hands stay on the steering wheel or where your car needs them to be.
With the Apple CarPlay, you can navigate around Apple Maps. Find out the places that you need to go or ask for recommendations to where you want to eat. You can also make calls when you are driving or read and write text messages. Just ask Siri anytime.
But, what if you need to take a screenshot of your CarPlay display?

It is possible to take a screenshot of your CarPlay screen if you have to. Sometimes, you want to save an image of a map you just located or a song you want to search and save later.
However, to do a screenshot, you will need to use your iPhone’s screenshot feature. For this method, it is recommended not to do it while driving or if you are the driver of the car.
To take a screenshot:
- Press both the Home button and the side or top button depending on the type of iPhone you are using.
