Home Button

With that in mind, there is one issue that I have experience on all of the iPhone’s that I have owned, and I’m sure it is an issue which is experience by millions. Over the course of time, theHome button located at the bottom of the phone sometimes can become unresponsive and appear to have a lagged effect after being pressed. In the past I have put this down to being the main button on the device and being used consistently over time, I guess I assumed it was wear and tear.

It seems that a simple home button recalibration could be the answer to my minuscule problem. If you have ever experienced the same problem, then follow the simple steps below which will hopefully leave you with a more responsive, happy home button ready to obey your every command.

Step 1: Navigate to, and launch one of the stock applications on your iPhone. If you don’t already know, the stock apps are things like weather, YouTube, stocks, settings etc (any that come as part of iOS).

Step 2: When the app is launched, press and hold the Power button located at the top of the device until the ‘Slide to power off’ appears.

Step 3: Press and hold the iPhone home button. Keep the button depressed until the Slide to power off slider disappears and the application quits back to Springboard.

Step 4: Voila! Your home button is now re-calibrated and should be more responsive for you.

  1. best bloody hint I’ve read in a long time and worked a treat. Thanks.
