  6. Save the recipe.

Step #3: Launch the Auto Clicker

With the recipe created, you can now easily launch the auto clicker:

  2. Select your Auto Clicker recipe.
  3. Triple-click the Side button on your iPhone to turn on Switch Control.
  4. Your auto-clicking recipe will begin. Tap the screen once to start automatic rapid taps.
  5. Triple-click again to disable Switch Control and stop auto-clicking.

Step #4: Customize the Auto Clicker

Some ways to customize your auto clicker further:

  • Create multiple recipes for different click points or tap amounts.
  • Adjust the Full Screen switch to only tap a portion of the screen.
  • Set the recipe to single-tap repeatedly versus multi-tap.
  • Increase device auto-lock time to keep clicking longer.


The iPhone’s built-in Switch Control and auto clicker recipe feature provide an easy way to automate repetitive screen taps. After just a bit of setup, you can enable hands-free rapid tapping any time it’s needed. Customize as needed for your particular auto-clicking needs.
