Trying to take a screenshot in the iOS simulator? Crashing? Here's a workaround.
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):
- Instead of saving a screenshot, in the simulator app, go to Edit -> Copy Screen ^⌘C
- Then open Preview (⌘ + Space then type Preview).
- Then File -> New from Clipboard (⌘ + N)
iOS software is super awesome.
