Can you put a regular home button on the iPhone 7 for broken Touch ID?

The iPhone 7 has a complete software based "home button". Is there a way to replace it with an actually button ( 6s, 6... etc)? Main question - Is it compatible? This might be a dumb question, just trying to be creative.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

its possible that the u10 ic on the home button needs replaced, if you could find someone to replace it, if this solves the problem then you will still have touch id. unless the ribbon is damaged.

Hello

it's not possible. You would have to create one from the beginning and make it compatible with software and hardware.

You should be able to cheat the iPhone and it is too complicated.

If you want to repair it, take it to apple and do not say it opened. Another option is to wet it, Apple usually change them for another without looking much (at a price that is around 50% of the total value)

I do not know solutions to repair touch id on iphone 5s, I'm afraid we should wait a lot for a solution on iphone 7

It’s not possible. iPhone 7 and 7 Plus home button is paired with its logic board. swapping of home button would lose both Touch ID and Return-to-home functions.

You can either take it to an apple store and pay an outrageous amount to have them replace the screen and reprogram a new home button OR order a third party replacement port with button here: http://bit.ly/2PRoIBg
