A back button provides backward navigation in the form of a button.
- Use the back button in apps that use a hierarchical navigation pattern.
- When your app is at narrow widths, use a smaller back button size.
- Don't use the back button in apps that use a flat navigation pattern. In flat navigation apps, the user typically moves through pages either through direct links within the content or through the nav bar.
