Is your “Home” button broken?

Have you ever had the problem that your “Home” button on your iPhone or iPad doesn’t work. It could be completely broken or sometimes just not responding. Apple even though about you. There is a solution, a virtual “Home” button. Here is how you get it:

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone.
  2. Now tap on General.
  3. Scroll down and tap on Accessibility.
  4. Scroll down again and tap on Assistive Touch under the Physical & Motor section.
  5. Turn Assistive Touch to On.

You’ll now notice a white dot appear on your screen that will remain there. You can tap on this to expand the Assistive touch menu. The Home option will allow you to tap it in the place of a physical Home button and be returned to the Home screen from wherever you are. To access the Power button function, tap on the Device menu and then tap on the Lock Screen icon and your screen will shut off.
