iPhone’s Apple Logo Is, Actually, a Button

Most of us know the iPhone’s touchscreen and buttons trigger actions but have no idea the body of the phone is pretty special too. There’s, actually, a big chance you didn’t notice this!

The Apple logo on the rear of the iPhone is actually a button. If I think about it, the entire back of the iPhone is a button. You can make it come to live by going to Settings.

Once you’re there, go to Accessibility and from there select Touch and Back Tap. Then, you’ll have two gesture options. One is a double tap, the other, a triple tap.

Each of these two has a series of actions you can connect them to. For example, the double tap can be used to take a Screenshot, while the triple tap may Mute your phone.

Of course, you can opt to do much more. Other available actions are Zoom, Magnifier, and varied, cool shortcuts. You can tap the back of your phone to make a GIF, open Safari or log an activity, such as running or yoga.

Now that you know this iPhone trick, what are you going to choose to do?
