    You can also simply say hey siri…give it one second…then say "screen shot"
    so it's "Hey Siri…screen shot" before it beeps or even as it beeps it will or she will still hear you, actually maybe ill turn that beep off cause its time consuming and only needed to know if shes listening from a distance,thanks though its quieter by pushing home/pwr. Multi grazie!

    My phone shuts down 50% of the time I screen shot. I hit both buttons quickly. I hate when that happens.
