Today the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that relates to devices that could be controlled via acoustic vibration. A device could be trained to understand that a user tapping their fingers on a desk in a certain rhythm translates to a command for “answer call and activate speaker.” The tapping aspect of the patent was introduced with the iPhone 12 and referred to as “Back Tap.”
