Taking a screenshot of your iPad allows you to capture whatever is on your iPad’s screen. It’s a great way to share your high game scores, message conversations, or setting configurations. Screenshots are saved as photos on your iPad, and if you use Photo Stream, they’re automatically shared with all of your other Apple devices. An example screenshot is shown below.
