A TikTok account dedicated to iPhone hacks has blown minds after sharing how to screenshot an entire article rather than taking numerous pictures of it.

User Ambre_skye captioned their video, "iPhone hack that I bet you’ve never tried!"

They then share how to screenshot an entire article by taking a screenshot and instead of keeping it selected on 'Screen', you simply click 'Full Page'. I don't know about you, but I've never actually properly noticed this before.

You then open your Files app on your phone and the full article screenshot will appear in your Recents.

Many users were shocked by the hack with one writing, "WHAT. Me not having [to] screenshot 256 times per one article. THANK YOU."

Another added, "For anyone wondering, this works on any Apple device but only in Safari."

However, some people who knew about the hack before joked, "The number of people who didn't know about this is blowing my mind."
