I just found out about a convenient way of taking screenshots from the iPhone Simulator (which, incidentally, is also an iPad Simulator). Just run your application and when you get to the screen you need to save, press
C. The ‘screenful’ will be copied to your clipboard. One easy option at this point is to start Preview, create a new file with the clipboard contents (
N), and save (
S). It couldn’t be any easier, and it spares you having to connect the device and taking shots from the Organizer.
As a side note, you could have discovered this shortcut yourself by opening the
Edit menu in the Simulator and pressing the
Control key. Moral of the story, it’s always worth spending some time checking an application’s menu with the
Command key pressed to see whether any ‘hidden’ shortcuts crop up…
