Yeah, absolutely. If for some reason Touch ID doesn't come back, then the cable is the issue. I.e. Bad cable. If everything with the home button is just fine

Thank you so If i use the cable touch id will come back and the home button will work?


Yeah, if it's just that cable, then you're good to go


that cable is just an extension from the home button to the motherboard. if the home button is good touch ID and function will be working good.


It doesn't come back because the flex cable is linked to the main board and so switching thecable will block the use of touch id
