The Apple logo on your iPhone can act as a smart “secret button”.
The back button can do a lot of handy tasks, including taking screenshots.
It’s called “Back Tap” and is part of the new iOS 14 software update.
How to use Back Tap on iPhone
To enable the feature, make sure you’ve updated to iOS 14.
Then go to your settings.
Scroll down and tap “Accessibility,” then click “Touch.”
Then scroll down to “Back Tap”.
You will have the choice to activate “Double Tap” or “Triple Tap”.
The one you select gives you the same options.
Click to see the features you can now control by double or triple tapping the Apple logo on the back of your phone.
They include taking screenshots, increasing or decreasing the volume, magnifying, scrolling and more.
For example, if you want to use a Double Tap to take screenshots, click on the “Double Tap” option and then check “Screenshot”.
You should now be able to take a screenshot just by double-tapping the Apple logo on the back of your phone.
Keep in mind that this feature may not work if you have a thick phone case.
You can change or deactivate the Back Tap functions at any time by following the same steps above.
