If you have a home button on your iOS device that just isn’t cutting it anymore, there is an option besides playing the button push roulette. We have recently mentioned calibrating your home button, but in some cases, even that won’t fix it. For those times, consider an easy option – the on-screen home button.
The devices sport a built-in Assistive Touch for accessibility purposes, and among the functions this provides is an on-screen home button, virtually sidestepping the mechanical one at the bottom of the screen. While it will take up a bit of screen real estate in the bottom corner of the screen, it is a nice option to shelling out for an out of warranty repair. So, how do you turn it on, and what does it do? Read on for dazzling screenshots and clever commentary.
- First, go to settings, and then choose “General” .
- Next, scroll down to the Accessibility option.
- Then select the AssistiveTouch option. This brings you to yet another screen.
