Did you know that your iPhone has a secret button? It’s true – provided that you’ve upgraded to iOS 14 and have an iPhone 8 or newer, that is.
As of the latest version of iOS 14, Apple launched a feature called “Back Tap.”
Back Tap was originally designed to be an accessibility feature, but it allows you to either double or triple tap the back of your phone to perform a range of custom tasks depending on your needs.
This can include taking a screenshot, locking your phone, or even launching certain apps.
Here’s how you can start using “Back Tap” on your own device right away.
1. Unlock your phone and open the “Settings” application.
2. Scroll through and select the option labeled “Accessibility” from the menu.
3. Tap once on the option labeled “Touch.”
4. Select the option labeled “Back Tap.”
5. Choose how many taps you’d like to initiate. “Double Tap” enables the feature after two taps, while “Triple Tap” enables it after three.
6. Scroll through the list and select what you’d like the “Back Tap” feature to actually do. You can have it enable Siri, increase or decrease the volume, open “Spotlight” search and more.
Once you’ve made your selection, you’re done.
You can now exit the “Settings” app, and start using “Back Tap” with two or three taps whenever you want. Pretty Amazing!
