iphone new button

If you have an iPhone 8 or newer, and upgrade to the new iOS 14 software, you have a new control button waiting to be activated.  It is the shiny silver apple on the back of the phone, now called the Back Tap.  It has been there since the iPhone 8 but was decorative only.  Now it can be activated to perform many functions. The Back Tap turns the entire back of your phone into a giant touch-sensitive pad. You can double or triple tap to launch various functions on your phone.  For a menu of functions, look in the Accessibility menu for Back Tap.  The button has nearly limitless possibilities for its use.

For instructions on how to use the Back Tap button on the new iPhone 14, click here.
