Add iPhone Back Tap Controls

You can control your Tesla by tapping the back of your iPhone.

Requires iOS 14+ and iPhone 8 or newer.

  1. Create a Shortcut.
  2. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Back Tap.
  3. Set Double Tap and/or Triple Tap to run your Shortcuts.

You can now tap the back of your iPhone to run your Shortcuts. Back Tap requires the phone to be unlocked.

Keep in mind: Your iPhone may detect Back Taps when you didn't mean to trigger it. Do not use Back Tap with critical functions like moving or opening the vehicle.
