What you can try doing to restart your device, turn on assistive touch. Once it’s active open it, select device, select more you’ll see a restart option and select it. Your device will restart, hopefully it works for you as we await next software update to fix this issue 🙇-1F3FE;♂

Yes, this is a BIG problem. Suddenly appears on my iPhone 8 immediately after iOS 11.2.1 was installed. Not only does home "button" fail to work (no bump indicating the touch was sensed) but the top-right button (POWER) is also disabled.


Can't even reboot the phone! When I hold down power to force quit it activates the 911 emergency call which I then have top cancel/stop. (SOS feature) So clearly the hardware is working but the latest update has messed something up.


Please Apple.... this is a HUGE problem. It makes my iPhone 8 unusable.

I am SO disappointed with Apple...

i have iphone 6 and after the 11.2.1 upgrade... MASSIVE PROBLEMS!!!

First - home buttons stopped working

Second- when the screen is sleeping it come back to life every 5 seconds - battery drains superfast


My feeling is that the system is a total wreck

Same here my 5s started not to react to pressing when it’s locked, its only react to power button, but also not every time, if I lock and immediatelly unlock home button works, but if I leave it locked for 5-10sec its not unlock with home button. Software issue 100% apple fix it

I've been told the update is not the problem my phone was probably broken before the update and the update brought it to light 😠


The home button just stopped working after an update.


This is so frustrating.


apple updates - either screw your battery or screw your phone. I won't be buying an iPhone again.
