Is your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad’s home button not as responsive as when you first purchased your iOS device? Would you like a possible quick and easy fix to make your home button more responsive? If you answered yes to the questions previously presented to you, you will be glad to know iDB has shared a quick way to recalibrate your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad’s home button. This means with a recalibration of the home button on your iOS device exiting apps and performing home button commands should be much more responsive.

In this How To guide from iJailbreak.com you will learn how to recalibrate the iOS home button to be much more responsive and to fix home button errors.

Recalibrate Home Button

Step 1) – The very first thing you will need to do is launch a stock iOS app like the Calendar, Stocks, YouTube etc.

Step 2) – Once the stock iOS app of your choice has been launched you will need to hold the power button (located on the top of your iOS Device) until the Slide To Power Off toggle appears.

Step 3) – As soon as you see the Slide To Power Off toggle appear you will need to quickly hold the home button until this toggle disappears.

Step 4) – When it does disappear you will have successfully recalibrated your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad’s home button.

Congratulations! With your newly recalibrated home button, you should notice you have a much more responsive home button.
