The New iPhone OS Will Disable Snapchat’s Screenshot Notification Feature

Nice Move

Man, it’s been a banner day for the resident perverts, hasn’t it? First, I treated you sickos to the blonde bombshell from UCLA with the major league rack, and now you’re all about to learn that you’ll soon be able to bypass Snapchat’s major perv flaw: the screenshot icon popping up on your counterpart’s screen after you blast her steamy nip slips.

With the download of Apple’s newest operating system for the iPhone, iOS 7, Snapchat’s screenshot notification feature will be disabled.

From Huff Post College:

Snapchat allows users to send short self-destructing photos and videos to friends. But the alert that tells people their (occasionally salacious) photos have been screenshot has been disabled for iPhone users in the new iOS 7 update, MacRumors reports. On old iPhone software, Snapchat closes the photo when someone screenshots it, which is how it recognizes that a screenshot is being taken. In iOS 7, the photo no longer closes when it’s being screenshot, MacRumors explains, so Snapchat has no way to know that the photo is being saved, and no alert is sent.

The operating system is still in Beta, meaning Snapchat still has some time to fix the “glitch” on their end. It’s set to be available to the public sometime this fall.

Fuck it, after a three or four month Snapchat hiatus, I’m getting back in the game. She’s downloading…

I will be blocking any and all users who send me the following: poop shots, male body parts from the neck down, ugly faces, or anything I find generally boring. Username: RogerDornTFM
