Apple abandoned the Home button on the iPhone last year when every 2018 iPhone model came with Face ID and an edge-to-edge screen. Even so, the company still sells the iPhone 8 with a Home button, and millions of older iPhones on the market still have this feature button.



Home button on iPhone.

If you are one of the millions who own an iPhone with a Home button. Here's what you can do in case the button suddenly stops working.

The Home button has been upgraded quite a number of times over the years. So before you fix, you need to know the Home button on your iPhone.

If you have an iPhone 5 / 5c / 4s / 4 or older, the Home button is just a simple plastic button, and replacing it is extremely easy.

If you use an iPhone 6s / 6 / 5s, the Home button contains a fingerprint sensor called Touch ID. You can still change this button, but the Touch ID function won't work anymore if you do it yourself. You will need to bring it to Apple or one of the Apple authorized service providers for Touch ID to continue working.

If you have an iPhone 8 or iPhone 7, the Home button is no longer a real button. It has become a software button, using Apple's taptic engine to make some vibrations that make you feel like you have just pressed a button. The good news is that these buttons are still replaceable, but Touch ID won't work anymore.

No matter which iPhone you're using, you still have some solutions to fix it in case it stops working or doesn't work as expected, according to iFixit's advice.
