Hi David,

The home button plugs into the [|home button link cable|new_window=true], which is a flat ribbon cable [|sandwiched between the back of the display and the shield plate|new_window=true].

If the part you purchased does not include a new home button link cable, you can [|use this guide|new_window=true] to transplant the cable from your old screen to your new one (assuming it is in good condition).

If you prefer, we also offer [|replacement screens with the home button link cable preinstalled|new_window=true] to make your repair easier (they do cost a little more). If you bought your screen from iFixit and would like to return it and purchase the "full assembly" version, just [|call or email us here|new_window=true]. Hope this helps!
