Small Black Square Rubber from Home Button area

When I took off the home button, a small black about 1/8 inch square rubber piece fell out. While gently peeling off the heated cable.

Can anyone tell me where this is supposed to go when I put the home button back on.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Not too sure what rubber piece you are taking about with the home button. There is not rubber peices on the home button of the 7 or 7 Plus. Can you take a picture of the piece and where it came off and I can tell you what is it and where it goes?

Can you also confirm that you have an iPhone 7 that you are working with?

Did you ever find your answer? Same issue here. Fell out while removing glass (shattered to bits...)


Never did find where it came from. Whatever it is, it made no difference to the phone. Repaired many other i7 and never came across this rubber piece.
