Question: iPhone 7 home button not working properly.

I have an iPhone 7 that started having issues with the home button. When I press the home button, it does not take me back to the home screen. It does not even vibrate to indicate the touch. Touch ID works fine. I can also tap the button twice to invoke reachability. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:

Hello,

What to do if a button or switch isn't working

  1. Restart your device. If you can't restart your device, try to force restart it.
  2. Remove any protective films and cases that might block the button or switch.
  3. Check for debris or dirt around the button or switch, and clean with a soft cloth.

If you need help with Touch ID, learn what to do.

If the button or switch still isn't working, is damaged, or works intermittently, you might need to set up service for your device. Contact Apple Support, then follow the steps to complete your service request.
