I'm gonna go ahead and guess you've damaged the cable on the backplate. This is me guessing that you're home button still works as a button

If I did slightly damage the cable would the home button still function but not the Touch ID?


Yes. That's happened to me once before


Ok thank you for your help. I'll order the part and try it out.
