You Will Soon Be Able To Take Screenshots On Snapchat Without Alerts

Creep freely, thanks to Apple

Your creeper dreams will soon become a reality, and you have Apple's latest software update to thank for that.

The tech giant's WWDC 2017 keynote unveiled many new features for the iPhone yesterday, as well as new gadgets, including the HomePod (a speaker with Siri) and a makeover for the Apple Watch. But for iPhone users, particularly Snapchat aficionados, Apple's iOS11 update will provide them with the necessary tools to creep without getting caught on the social media app. The update's "screen recording" mode will allow you to record, take screenshots of, and save Snapchat videos and photos without notifying the sender.

Found in the Control Center, the new mode essentially allows you to record anything that appears on your screen, sending the result to your camera roll. Normally, the screen recording stops when you access the camera app, but, as Mic reports, the new technology bypasses Snapchat and allows it to continue rolling and capture a person's Snapchat video or photo.

But don't get too excited—the update won't be available for download until the fall. It's also unclear if Snapchat will find a way to work through the glitch before the time comes. More iOS11 updates include seamless iCloud syncing (so iMessages won't take up all your storage), Apple Pay payments to and from friends a la Venmo, and a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" feature.
