    I haven't set mine up yet and i'm curious what folks have set theirs up to do?

    (For those who don't know, go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch , then scroll down to 'Back Tap'. You have two options, double tap and triple tap and they can be set to do different things.)

    Didn't know about this new feature. Thanks for the information

    Double Tap - Screenshot
    Triple Tap - HomeScreen

    Edit; I had to change the double tap feature because I was getting a lot of unwanted Screenshot...LOL .
    I went with...Lock Device - Double Tap for now.

    Double-tap: Reachability. Thank God. It's such hard gesture to do one-handed on an X form-factor phone.

    Triple-tap: Control center. Again, using the device one-handed with my left hand, this is fantastic.

    Awesome timing! I just figured this out! I'm using double tap to get to my home screen, and triple tap for the app switcher.

    I have double tap set up for control center but never use it. I HAD triple tap set up for screenshot but used it too much (accidentally)

    Nice feature
    I found that a double tap for screen shot brings up a lot of false screen shots

    You don’t realize that your tapping the back of your device but find a lot of screen shots in your camera roll. At least that’s my experience

    I enabled the option awhile back during the early betas and it was okay, but I kept forgetting about it and was basically doing what I’ve always done. Nowadays, I don’t even bother with it.

    You beat me to it.
