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.
