    Back tap to Screenshot

    Since iOS 14 it's been a lot easier to so a screenshot ( bettrr than a sequence of button pushes, once it's set up. It worked well on my 8+ and also on my iPhone 12 and is great for putting screen images in 'photos' to attach in forum posts.

    Settings-Accessibility-Touch
    Scroll to bottom & select 'Back Tap'
    Select 'double or triple tap' as desired
    Select 'screenshot'

    Now when you double or triple tap the back of the phone near the  logo a screenshot will occur.
    This should work with or without a case on the phone as long as the case isn't so robust as to be totally blocking the tap.

    Thanks, I’ve been using this for a while now, and I find that I use a ‘triple tap’ for a screenshot, as I was getting too many accidental screenshots with a ‘double tap’. And I now use the ‘double tap’ for the Lock Screen.

    Good idea I changed mine just now to triple for the same reason. I've used double though for control centre ( actually I just reversed triple & double) for what they did.

    I double tap for screenshot (no issues)
    Triple tap for assistive touch, which offers several options.

    Ledsteplin, I like the idea of Assistive Touch, so I’ve changed my ‘double tap’ to Assistive Touch which now gives a lot more choices, thanks

    Hi,

    How do you double tap for screenshots? When I do a screenshot I hit the right side button and the up volume button at the same time for a screenshot
