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.
Memoji on the iPhone and iPad continue to gain new options for personalization. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Apple has added face coverings to the mix with iOS 14. Now your Memoji can sport a unique face mask to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Once a face covering is added, all of the Memoji expressions are masked automatically.
One of the most simple and useful apps on iPhone keeps getting better. Apple's Voice Memos has gained an audio enhancement feature with the launch of iOS 14. Much like the magic wand in Photos, with one tap the iPhone utilizes on-device processing to improve the quality of existing recordings. Enhance Recording will analyze the audio to reduce background noise and highlight important sounds, such as voices. If the results aren't to your liking, it takes one tap to undo the changes.
iPhone owners can set up Tap to Wake on their devices to easily glance at the time, or see pending notifications on the lock screen. In sleep mode, the iPhone display goes dark to save battery. Picking up the iPhone and unlocking to catch up on messages and alerts takes time and is likely to kick up your Screen Time totals for the week. With Tap to Wake you can quickly check up on lock screen notifications without opening the home screen.
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.
