How to fix home button

I know the finger print scanner will never work but I am unsure if the button will not work. If I get a replacement home button and install it would I be able to use it as a normal home button without Touch ID?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

No-- a replacement home button for iPhone 7 will not be recognized by the device and will not work either as a home button or as a fingerprint sensor. You might as well just put a rhinestone there.

Replacement Home Buttons for the iPhone 7 are for cosmetic purposes only. If you still have the original button, the "click" or return function can be repaired but not the TouchID.

How can the click be fixed?


Go to Apple and get a new screen that will come with a new home button, fcam assembly etc. This is the only way
