iPhone Home Button Repair & Replacement

Are you facing problems with your iPhone Home Button? We can help!

Is your iPhone home button not working at all? Is it stuck? If yes, our tech genius at CelMetro can repair your iPhone the same day we receive it. The home button on your iPhone can stop working or malfunction when exposed to water. The button can get jammed after a fall if the screen is cracked around it.

Apple incorporated the Touch ID in the home button, starting from iPhone 5S and later models until iPhone 8 Plus, after which the home button was removed from the iPhone X and later models that favored the bezel-less display design. However, the iPhone SE continues using the Touch ID home button.

There are several steps you can do before bringing in your iPhone for repair:

Clean the Home Button:

  1. If you are using any screen protector, remove it to see if it is blocking or obstructing the home button.
  2. Inspect the home button closely for any damage.
  3. Check if any dust or debris accumulated around the button. If yes, clean it with a dry microfibre cloth or use a soft-bristled toothbrush without any liquid or cleaning agent.

If you feel the movement and click of the button still does not work, you can restart your iPhone for a final troubleshooting step.

Restart your iPhone:

  1. Press and hold the sleep/wake/power button.
  2. You will now see a slide to power off option on your iPhone screen.
  3. Slide the power button icon to the right to turn off your iPhone.
  4. Wait for one minute before you turn on the iPhone.

Here are some of the customers’ most common questions about the iPhone Home Button.

Yes, the iPhone home button can be replaced. You can visit a professional mobile phone repair shop, Apple Store, or Apple Authorized Service Provider to get your iPhone home button replaced.

The straight answer is NO. The Touch ID is digitally paired with the secure enclave inside the processor, along with the fingerprint data. The only option to fix the Touch ID is to visit the Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for a complete replacement. Once the home button is damaged, it cannot be restored to its original condition due to the security on it.
