Answer to: iPhone 5 home button not aligned after replacement?If Apple did the same thing they did with the 4 and the 4s then yes. Unfortunately that very thin layer of adhesive is responsible for holding the home button in place... I'm not sure where you would be able to get the adhesive but when I did the repair on my 4s I just placed a cut strip of electrical tape over the back of the home button and it did the trick! Haven't had a problem since! EDIT: Looking back at the teardown of the iPhone 5 it seems they introduced a support bracket that I assume was supposed to help with this problem (iPhone 5 Teardown)... I would check to make sure that bracket is fully tightened down, otherwise I guess you could try the tape method. Either way good luck!
