Four ways to fix an unresponsive iPhone home button by Sharon Vaknin

If your iPhone button is not responding and you’re out of warranty, here are four things you can do to fix it. No matter how anal you are about keeping your iPhone safe and intact, there is still a chance your home button will eventually suffer the effects of normal wear and tear. The iPhone 5, which features a change to the anatomy of the home button, may solve this problem, but previous iPhone models are still susceptible to this common phenomenon. If you’re still within the provided one-year warranty and your phone doesn’t show signs of accidental damage, head on over to Apple. As long as you’re covered by warranty, the company will replace your phone or perform any necessary repairs. Those who got hit with the home button plague after their warranty period can give the following four fixes a try. Just be warned: if you improperly perform methods 2 and 3 and damage your phone, we don’t take responsibility.

  • Method 1: Calibrate (and possibly restore)
  • Method 2: Realign the docking port
  • Method 3: Clean the home button
  • Method 4: Enable the on-screen home button
