iOS simulator screenshot crash workaround

Trying to take a screenshot in the iOS simulator? Crashing? Here's a workaround.

The Problem:

Trying to take a screenshot in the iOS simulator (e.g. for uploading to the App Store listing) sometimes crashes the simulator. This is a workaround at time of writing.

The Fix (⌘ = CMD/command):

  1. Instead of saving a screenshot, in the simulator app, go to Edit -> Copy Screen ^⌘C
  2. Then open Preview (⌘ + Space then type Preview).
  3. Then File -> New from Clipboard (⌘ + N)

Conclusion:

iOS software is super awesome.

Cheers.
