‘Secret button’ on the back of your iPhone goes viral on TikTok
The Back Tap feature on the iPhone allows users to simply tap the back of their phone near where the Apple logo is, and their phone will do whatever action they’ve programmed through the settings menu.
A TikTok user showed 1 million viewers how to use the feature that’s been around since 2020. After a viral TikTok, iPhone users are discovering their device has one more button than they thought — and it can make their lives easier. “You’re using your iPhone wrong,” TikTok creator @ellyawesometech says, if you aren’t utilizing the “secret button” on the back of your phone. The video, which reached 1 million views after one day, reveals an accessibility feature one user said “changed (their) life forever.”Watch the VideoApple Backtap Instructions
