Better send it to Apple for the moment, because once you use a third party button the iPhone will automatically disable all home button fonctions, iPhone 7 is different from previous generations.

Assistive touch will kick in automatically once it detects a malfunction of the button even with a new home button.

Lets hope with the next iOS update they (Apple) will let us replace this part>

@soros As to your comment about Apple letting us replace this part: not a chance in !&&*, they want to force you to go to them for repairs.

Hey Nerdchikk,

Unfortunately, with Apple making it increasingly impossible to do home button repairs, you will not be able to replace the home button whatsoever. Once an iPhone 7 home button breaks, only the Geniuses can install a new one. If you can't figure out a way to get the original to work, you're out of luck.
