iOS 14 and home automation

Apple has just concluded the WWDC and one of the biggest things that has a direct impact on us Home Automation enthusiasts is the new Back Tap feature. You can be used to trigger Shortcuts, screenshot or even open Google Assistant. If you’ve been using both Siri and Google Assistant like me, you’ll know how cumbersome it is to launch Google assistant!

The back tap function is like a custom button, except it’s not a button! Early beta users have reported that it works relatively well even with cases on, and it allows on to set it to call system actions or shortcuts. I can’t wait to try it out!

Are you excited yet? Stay tuned as we cover more WWDC news.
