The Home button on any Touch ID enabled device is paired to the logic board. When you replace a screen on those devices, you have to move the original Home button to the new screen.

If you don't have the Touch ID Home button, because it is broken or lost, you can put a "normal" button (for example, like this one). The phone will work and the button will work but it will not have any Touch ID functionality.
