iOS 14 has a large number of hidden or secret functions that are located in the accessibility menu of the settings application. All these features are designed so that anyone, regardless of whether they have vision, motor or any other type of problems, you can use your iPhone as normally as possible. However, some of them can be useful for all users.
In this article we tell you how to activate the function Touch back, a feature that will allow you to use a double or triple back tap to launch quick actions in iOS 14.
How to set up Touch Back on an iPhone with iOS 14
If you want to configure this function, you must open the application Settings. In it, enter Accessibility.
Then, locate the section To touch.
Scroll to the bottom of the screen until you find the button Touch back.
At this point, you will have to decide if you want to configure two or three back touches for your iPhone. It is not necessary to choose between one option or the other. Rather, you can configure two different actions depending on the number of taps you make.
Finally, select the action that the system should take when detecting the rear touches.
You can ask iOS to take a screenshot, turn the volume up or down, invoke Siri, mute the phone, or activate the easy-reach feature. Obviously, there are other actions related to accessibility that can be useful, such as activating the magnifying glass, AssistiveTouch or VoiceOver.
