It’s called Magnifier and it offers a substantial zoom so you can read small text.

You can also inspect small objects using Apple feature.

And it even has special color filters to make certain things easier on the eyes.

Feature has been shared by TikTok creator @marlonwirelesswhere it has hundreds of likes.

One way to find it is to simply search for it.

Drag down from the top of the Home screen, then type Magnifier.

It might be worthwhile to put the app somewhere obvious on your Home screen for future use.

You can also use the Side Button to open the Magnifier.

Go to Settings then type Accessibility and look for Accessibility Shortcuts.

Then enable Magnifier for the “Triple-click the side button” setting.

Now when you triple click the Side Button, the Magnifier app will open.

But potentially even better is to use the Back Tap feature.

To enable this feature, make sure you’ve updated to iOS 14 or later. To do that, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

Then go to your Settings.

Scroll down and tap “Accessibility,” then click “Touch.”

Then scroll down to “Back Tap”.

You will have the choice to enable “Double tap” or “Triple tap”.

Whichever you choose gives you the same options.

Click to see what features you can currently control with a double- or triple-tap on the back of the Iphone.

These include taking screenshots, increasing or decreasing the volume, zooming, scrolling, and more.

Select Magnifier for one of them, and then you’ll be able to launch apps by tapping the back of your iPhone.

Keep in mind that this feature may not work if you have a thick case.

You can toggle the Back Tap control features or turn it off at any time using the same steps above.
