Unresponsive Home Button iPhone 4

September 05, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Having trouble with your iPhone 4 Home button?  Is it unresponsive?   Well mine was too until I discovered this nice work around.   Yesterday I went to the Apple Store to get my Home Button fixed on my iPhone 4.  Instead of fixing it they offered me a new iPhone 4 for $149.  I didn’t think it was worth it, especially with the iPhone 5 coming out soon.  And also for them to fix it, I got the feeling that it would cost more than what it was worth.  However, the guy at the Apple Store was kind enough to show me an alternative solution to fixing my Home Button problem.

 

Go into Settings--->General--->Accessibility.  Once into Accessibility, scroll down to AssistiveTouch and turn it on.  Once you do that after a second or two a faint white circle will appear on the screen.  When you touch it four different options will appear and one of them will be the Home Button.  The “On Screen Home Button” works just like the physical one.  Touching it will bring you back to the home screen. Double Tap it and you can see the apps that you have running/open.    If you want to move the white spot to a different spot on your screen you can do so by holding it down and dragging it.  Unfortunately you can only place it on the sides of the screen and not in the middle of the screen.

 

Anyhow, I just thought I’d share this with you all in case you are having the same problem and need a quick and easy solution to a unresponsive home button on your iPhone 4.
