What are you using double tap / triple tap on the back of your phone for?

Double Tap- Screen Shot
Triple Tap- Lock Device


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

This is very true and my experience as well.

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.)

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.

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.

You beat me to it.

Double tap- reachability
Triple tap- control center.

11 Pro: Double tap is App Switcher/Triple is Control Center

XS: Double is Notification Center/Triple is none

Removed screen shot a month or so back because of all the accidental screenshots I found on my camera roll lol.
