    Since I updated I can't take screenshots on my iPhone 6. Anyone else having this problem? It worked fine on 8.0.0 but now it just turns the screen off.

    Just worked on my 6. Try restarting the phone. That sometimes clears stuff up.

    I've noticed screenshotting on the 6 and 6 Plus are a bit trickier than before. You have to hit the power button first, then the home button. It's gotten me many times where it locked my phone without getting the screenshot.

    I've noticed the same thing, it's much more difficult to take a screenshot with 8.0.2. I think stephen1108 summed it up well, if you hit the power button just a split second earlier than the home button, you can technically get it to work....but it's a B* trying to time it correctly.

    I always enable assistive touch and use that to take a screen shot ;)

    You don't have to hit both buttons at exactly the same time and release both together..

    You can press and hold the home button then press and hold the lock button, or vice versa..

    I go: press-hold home button, then straight after the "click" press-release the lock button, then after the screen flash, release the home button.

    Alternatively, press-hold the lock button, then straight after the "click" press-release the home button, then after the screen flash, release the lock button..

    It's not a mad-dash-panic to press them both at exactly the same time, briefly, releasing at exactly the same time.
