The Accessibility feature makes it even easier to customize your iPhone, and it's updated in iOS 14 to make it even more useful.

In iOS 14, you can double and triple tap the back of your iPhone to call up various features, including Siri and shortcuts. Just tap to instantly bring up the screen you want to call up. I'll show you how to do that in this article.

Please note that this article is based on the iOS 14 public beta version, so the screens and procedures may be different from those in the official version.

Tap the back of the iPhone to bring up the functions

Tap the back of your iPhone to instantly view features like the Control Center and Magnifier. Open the Settings app and tap Accessibility, then Touch.

iPhone
▲Open the Settings app, go to Accessibility (left) and then to Touch (right).

When you open Touch, scroll down and select Back Tap. Tap Double Tap on top and choose a function.

iPhone
▲Scroll down to Back Tap at the bottom (left) and set up Double Tap (right).

Decide which function you want to call up with a Double Tap, and you can choose from a variety of functions, including Siri and Shake. As with Double Tap, you can assign the same function to Triple Tap. In this case, I set it up so that Double Tap on the back of the iPhone brings up the Control Center and Triple Tap brings up the Magnifier screen.

iPhone
▲I assigned Control Center to Double Tap (left). Similarly, I've set up Magnifier for Triple Tap (right).

This allows you to tap on the back of your iPhone to instantly see the screen you want to use without having to do multiple operations. Let's try setting up and using some of the functions you use frequently in your daily life.

Screens from the public beta version of iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 are shown with special permission based on our coverage.
