While iPhone and iPad have had a system-wide dark mode since iOS 13 and many third party apps have their own dark or night mode settings, there are still instances where the screen remains bright. One such instance that you've probably noticed is the Google search results in Safari, which can suddenly seem blindingly bright if you're in a dark setting and using dark mode. Before Apple developed its true dark mode people would use the "Smart Invert" and "Classic Invert" to emulate a dark mode.
iOS 14's Back Tap is a new Accessibility feature that lets you accomplish a variety of tasks by simply tapping the back of your iPhone. It can not only change various settings, but, using Shortcuts, it can launch apps or even specific functions of apps as well, making it incredibly versatile. One such function, if it suits you, is checking sports scores of specific teams. For instance, you can set up Back Tap to go right to ESPN's Game Cast of your favorite team. Here's how to set it up on iPhone:
iOS 14's Back Tap is an accessibility feature that literally lets you tap the back of your iPhone to access system features or start shortcut automations. For example you could assign your App Switcher to the double back tap, letting you open your App Switcher simply by tapping the back of your iPhone two or three times. There are a bunch of system and accessibility features available for Back Tap, including Control Center, Home, Screenshot, Magnifier and Zoom among others, but Flashlight is noticeably missing.
Back Tap makes it possible to perform a variety of system actions by tapping the back of the iPhone case. Actions can be assigned to a double-tap or triple-tap, meaning that up to two actions can be configured at a time. For example, double-tapping the back of your iPhone can scroll, capture a screenshot, change the volume, or even launch a Shortcut. Back Tap also provides options to launch various Accessibility features.
