Software repair your home button on iOS device (iPhone, iPad…)

One of the unfortunate byproducts of owning an iOS device is that your Home button can become a little sluggish over time. When you get your new iPhone or iPad and use it initially, the Home button works smoothly, but it can eventually become less responsive.

Fortunately, there’s a subtle trick in iOS for recalibrating your Home button. After performing this tip on your personal iOS device, you should notice that your Home button is considerably more responsive when you’re navigating throughout iOS.

iDownloadBlog passes on an incredibly helpful tip that many probably don’t know about. It’s actually a very simple process to recalibrate your Home button. So lets begin:

Steps 1. open a stock iOS app or Weather, Stocks, Clock.

Step 2.  Once the app is open, press your iPhone’s power button until the ‘slide to power off’ screen appears.

Step 3. From that screen, press and hold your Home button until iOS force quits the stock app you have open.

Step 4. You’re done!


Your iPhone’s Home button (this also works wonderfully on the iPad and iPod touch) should now be just as responsive as ever. Let us know if this tip worked for you in the comments below!

Still fuzzy on how it’s done. Here is an video from iDownloadBlog

    Aw, this was a very good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate a top
    notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!
