Four ways to fix an unresponsive iPhone home button
Here are four common ways to fix an unresponsive iPhone home button:
1. Calibrate the home button: Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and scroll down to the section where it says “Home Button.” Tap on “Allow Multiple Clicks” and then turn on “Rest Finger to Open.” This will calibrate the home button and make it more responsive.
2. Clean the home button: Sometimes, dirt and debris can get lodged in the home button and cause it to become unresponsive. Use a clean, dry cloth to gently wipe the home button and remove any dirt or debris.
3. Use Assistive Touch: Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn on “Assistive Touch.” This will add a virtual home button to your iPhone screen, which you can use instead of the physical home button.
4. Replace the home button: If none of these solutions work, you may need to have the home button replaced. Take your iPhone to an Apple Store or authorized repair center to have the home button replaced.
