Once the thumbnail disappears, you can find screenshots by opening the Photos app, selecting Albums, and then tapping Screenshots.

That’s how to take screenshots on iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max! It’s a pretty easy thing to do, but you may need to do it properly for it to work.
