Taking Scrolling Screenshot on iPhone was impossible until you found this guide. Before we proceed, let’s ask a question, why would someone take scrolling screenshot on iPhone? The answer to this question is quite obvious, you want to save a webpage with a lot of text, offline to read it later or share with your friend. On iPhone, Scrolling Screenshots are not readily built into the device OS. So, we need to make use of third party apps like Tailor and Stitch It! etc.
