iPhone tip #4: enable Back Tap

Go to Settings / Accessibility

Tap ‘Touch’

Scroll down and tap ‘Back Tap’

Now tap ‘Single Tap’ or ‘Double Tap’ and then choose an action or app to open

When you tap the back of your iPhone 2 or 3 times the action will occur. This is a very clever feature, but be aware that Double Tap can be accidentally activated quite easily.

Add a note to the email to describe it and then tap ‘Use’.


To send an email from the email address created above simply tap the ‘From…’ field when composing an email and then ‘Hide My Email’.

You can now choose the one you want to use.
