Can I install this iPhone 5s home button on my iPhone 5?

Hi guys,

I was looking online and why not, I thought having an iPhone 5s style home button for my iPhone 5 would be cool. So I came across into this:

So, if any of you guys can help me out and let me know if it will work on my iPhone 5 it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Thank you, I know that it wont have fingerprint feature but it will look like a 5s.

But I am a little skeptical because the description says "for iPhone 5s".

in fact, This one looks way better than the others 5s home button look a likes that are complete aluminum. (I've been researching for a while) and even though it is not that expensive, I don't want to get my hopes up and go into the hassle of opening up the device for nothing.

Thanks.

it doesn't work because you would have to add different software to the phone. I have a 5c and i just bought a fake touch id home button. I hope this helps!

software and hardware as well. The iphone 5 and 5c have a really simple way of connecting to the home button, with two electrical; contacts. when you push the button it completes a circuit. I have "hit" the home button many times by bridging the gap between the contacts many times with a metal object in order to go home while testing a disassembled phone. And anyway the iphone 5s has a complex data cable for its home button.
