How to fix your iPhone Home button

Published on October 9, 2011

The Home button got to be the most problematic hardware on the iPhone.

Recently, my iPhone 4 Home button started to respond slower. I either have to press multiple times, or press harder.. If you faced the same problem, you are not the only one.

Luckily, there is a fix for it! I tried the fix, and it did work help! Here is what you need to do:

  1. Open any application
  2. Press and hold the power button until the slide to shutdown swipe bar appears.
  3. Release Power button
  4. Press and hold Home button lightly, until screen returns to icon screen
  5. Enjoy your functioning home button!!!
This procedure recalibrates the home button after normal wear or heavy use.
