Did you know that iPhone has a cool hidden function that allows you to trigger certain actions every time you tap the back panel of your phone? For example, you can now take a screenshot by double-clicking, or open the camera by clicking the iPhone’s back panel three times. With the new post-click feature in iOS 14, the entire rear panel of the iPhone has basically become a large touch-sensitive button, allowing you to interact with your phone in an unprecedented way.
In addition to the available operations provided in the Back Tap menu, this feature is well integrated with Apple’s Shortcuts application. This further makes it possible to assign almost all actions that can be used as shortcuts on the Internet. In this guide, we tell you how to use the new Back Tap feature in iOS 14.
iOS 14: How to enable and use the click after function
Please note that this feature is only available for iPhone 8 and newer models running iOS 14. In addition, this feature is not available on the iPad. Having said that, please follow the steps below to enable it on iPhone and press.

- Scroll down and go to Accessibility.
- Under “Physics and Motors” on the next screen, click touch.
- Scroll to the end and go to Rear faucet.
- Now you will see two options-double click and three clicks.
- You can assign any action available in the list. For example, you can set the “double-click” operation as a quick screenshot, and you can assign the “double-click” operation as a quick access control center.
- After assigning the action, exit the setting. You can now start using click backwards on your iPhone.
iOS 14: Use shortcut keys for anti-faucet integration
Back Tap can also integrate well with the “Shortcut” application. This means that in addition to the actions that already exist in the back menu, you can also assign custom shortcuts if needed. For example, if you have a shortcut to run the Instagram Stories camera from the “Shortcuts” app, you can now assign it to a simple two or three clicks.
