The iOS 14 update is now finally rolling out worldwide.
There are significant changes under the hood with iOS 14, including a redone home screen with the ability to add widgets, the new App Library curations, compact UI for interactions including Siri and incoming phone calls, a new app called Translate, App Clips that let you download a usable portion of the app to try out before you download the full app, as well as significant enhancements to privacy and security.
But what amused people the most was the new way to take screenshots: Double-tapping the back of your iPhone.

The Back Tap feature alone in the new iOS 14 update is worth the download! Just set my Double Tap to take a screenshot. Much easier now! Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Back Tap #iOS14— Larry Miller (@millerIFT) September 17, 2020
Waaa I’m loving iOS 14 back tap! So easy to take screenshot now and lock my phone!— Amritpal Singh (@pal_rudebwoy) September 17, 2020
To set up the back tap, you need to go to Settings, then Accessibility, then Touch then Back Tap and add 'Screenshot' as the feature.
But is your device eligible for the update?
