Scroll Up or Down by Tapping Back of iPhone

Your iPhone not only detects a touch on the display, but you can also do things by touching or tapping the back of the iPhone. We are using the same “BackTap” method here to scroll up or down on any page without touching your iPhone screen. To enable it,

  1. Launch Settings from your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap Accessibility settings.
  3. Go to Touch > BackTap.
  4. Select Double Tap or Triple Tap to trigger the scrolling action.
  5. Scroll down and choose Scroll Up or Scroll Down options under SCROLL GESTURES.

For instance, you can select Scroll Down with the Double Tap action. For Triple Tap, you can choose Scroll Up as well. After selecting the gesture actions, go back to save the settings.
