One of the most incredible add-on to iOS 14 is Back Tap. However, the Back Tap feature is not available for all the iPhones running iOS 14. Furthermore, the Back Tap has two options, Double Tap and Triple Tap, and depending upon your settings, the Double Tap or Triple Tap performs the assigned function. From taking a Screenshot, Adjust Volume, Shortcut Automation, Accessibility Features, Activate App-Switcher, Lock Screen, access Control Center, etc. Shortcut Automation has taken Back Tap to the next level, however, if you don’t want to mess with automation, there are plenty of default options available to select.
Moreover, some of the third-party applications also support Back Tap and perfectly works with it. Make sure to update the iPhone to the latest iOS 14 or later, otherwise, you’ll be missing the major features of the iPhone. Connect the iPhone to Wi-Fi and then visit the Settings app > General > Software Update to check for the updates.
