One of the news that we have available in iOS 14 is that of activate functions by tapping on the back of our iPhone. This option, which is directly related to Accessibility, caused quite a stir when it was discovered in the beta version as the option of activating a pointer on the iPad did in its day. In any case, the important thing is that now with the public versions of iOS and iPadOS we can activate this function on the iPhone, so let’s see what steps we have to follow to do so.

The public beta of iOS 14 is now available, we explain how to install it

Double or triple press according to your convenience

This option that in principle is specially designed and created for people who have some type of physical problem that prevents them from performing any action on the screen, can be used by double or triple pressing on the back. Each of them can activate or deactivate a function and we can configure it to our liking. Logically this option is available in the beta versions of iOS 14, so use the tutorial that we have made and that we leave above to install the public beta if you do not know how to do it.

The first thing we have to do is access: Settings> Accessibility> Touch> Touch back and right in this menu we find the possibility of configuring an action by pressing on the back of the iPhone with your finger. You can lock the screen, take a screenshot, open the control center, activate the Siri assistant, or whatever you want.

The problem is that this option can be activated by mistake when we carry the device in a backpack, bag or even in our pocket. The option is in beta phase and may fail a bit for now so the advice is to try for example with “screenshots” and three clicks, if it is not activated with your daily use then you can configure other things that can be help. Remember that this function It is only available on iOS 14.
