Put a virtual Home button on the iPhone and iPad
If you have upgraded to iPhone X and you are familiar with the home button on previous phones, or something malfunctioned in the main home button on your iPhone, you can create a virtual Home button at the bottom of the screen using one of the most important accessibility features, the great tool AssistiveTouch. Here's how ...
Although AssistiveTouch contains a wide range of features and accessibility, we'll focus only on how to create the Home button or the Home touch button on the iPhone and iPad screen:
Go to Settings> General> Accessibility> AssistiveTouch.
◉ Activate AssistiveTouch and select Single-Tap
◉ From Single-Tap Options, choose Home to create a Home button.
Drag the button to the bottom of the screen or place it at the position of your choice. Thus, you have created a default main screen button through which you can do what you do with the real button, such as exit from any application, call the application switcher, or make a forced restart by pressing it and the power button for several seconds until the device turns off and works again and appears the Apple.
This default button works on both the iPhone and the iPad, and it is very useful for those who do not have this button, such as iPhone X users, especially the upcoming iPhone devices that will be without a home button. The main purpose of using this tool is to help find an alternative for users who have trouble with their phones.
To disable this tool, do the same as before, and turn off AssistiveTouch.
Home button not responding
Sometimes the iPhone's home button does not respond until after pressing it multiple times, or it is delayed in response, so that problem can be solved through the system itself. These symptoms may be caused by damage from moisture or a fall.
As for the delay in response, you can fix it through the system as follows:
◉ Open an application from the default system applications, say the weather application.
◉ With the application open, press the iPhone power button until the “Slide to turn off” box appears, then release your hand. You will see the iPhone lock screen above the Weather app.
◉ Now press and hold the Home button until the iPhone lock screen disappears and exit the application. Thus, you find speed in the response of the button by simply pressing it.
We don't know the secret behind it, but this method might reset the Home button settings to their original state.
In the event of damages and accidents, and the failure of any of the buttons as a result, it is preferable to go to the warranty or to technicians who specialize in repairing Apple phones.
