How to: Take a screenshot on an iPhone

After having a look around the Internet at some of the reviews for various iPhone applications available I began wondering how they managed to snap screenshots of the apps. I knew it had to be part of the iPhone Operating System because it would need to be available to any application.

After a quick hunt around I discovered that pressing the Home button and the Standby button at the same time you get a screenshot taken (including a flash of white and the camera shutter noise). Your new image can then be found in the Camera Roll in the Photos application.

Here is an example screenshot that I took of my home screen:
