Why is the home button overly sensitive?

Any idea why the home button would be overly sensitive. When I lay my finger on the button it acts like I'm pressing it when I'm not using any pressure whatsoever. Have you ever heard of this? I've personally never come across it.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Has the screen ever been replaced before?

I replaced the digitizer. I'll ask the customer in the morning if she had the issue before.

I had a similar problem and I went on this site that told me how to fix it I basically just press the home button really hard, harder than I normally would and that God network I want to rest again even harder and so on and so on until I somehow ended up putting something back into its place and now it works like a charm

This is a new feature in iOS 10, I think

Settings --> General --> Accessibility --> Home Button --> Rest Finger to Open

Thanks for the tip! No more pressing the home button two times and no more needing to press the home button after pressing the power button.
