Take iPhone screenshots without pressing a button

For this, we will use the “back Tap” function as a shortcut for taking screenshots. You can also use the Back Tap feature for other shortcuts in iOS. All one needs to do is double or triple tap right above the Apple logo to initiate the shortcut.

-Head over to the Settings app on your iPhone.

-Look for Accessibility and open it.

-Then look for Touch and within that, open Back Tap.

-Choose double or triple tap, then choose screenshot.

-One done, do the tap function on the back of your iPhone and it will take a screenshot.

-Back Tap also works with cases on, hence you can simply pat your iPhone’s back to take a screenshot at any situation, without pressing the pesky button combo.

-Apart from screenshots, you choose from over a dozen activities, Siri shortcuts, and more functions to assign to the back tap. Sadly, you only get the options of double or triple tap.
