What is iOS 14 “Back Tap”?

“Back Tap” in iOS 14 is a feature in Settings that allows you to perform an action on your iPhone by just tapping on the back of it. You can change what your iPhone will do if you double-tap its Back, although by default it opens Control Center. To use this feature you just need to double-tap on the back of your iPhone and your iPhone will perform an action such as open the control center or enables the Siri.

It is the first time that Apple had to bring a feature related to hardware with a new Software Update. And it is also a sign that how much optimized the iOS 14 will be as it can even know that you are tapping on the back of your iPhone.

The Back tap settings are customizable, you can tell your iPhone running on iOS 14, what to do when you double-tap, or a triple tap on the back of it. And I will tell you how you can customize this setting.
