Tips and tricks with iOS 14

  1. Back tap in order to activate Google Assistant

The Back tap feature is among the most prominent features on iOS 14 which will allow you to trigger such actions as taking a screenshot and opening the control center just by tapping on the back of an iPhone. Nevertheless, the best use of this feature is triggering Google Assistant using double or triple taps.

First of all, you will need to download the Google Assistant application on your iPhone. Then you create a Siri Shortcut by adding the Hey Google action. Now you can enable the back tap in Accessibility Settings.

While it does allow users to play videos and carry out different tasks simultaneously, with this little tip, you can also play YouTube videos in the background while there is no need to purchase YouTube premium.

To enjoy this feature, you need to open YouTube in Safari and play the video in full-screen mode. When the video begins playing, you will flick it to the sides in order to dock that video in the background. That’s simple.
