Many iPhone 4 owners, including myself, complain about the fragility of the Home button. Indeed, after several months of use it does not respond very well to a press and double pressing to display the multitasking dock becomes a real torture – ‘
It can be a problem of wear but also a bad calibration of your button which constitutes a software bug of the iOS. In principle if your device is under warranty, a small round trip to Apple Service and voila. But if like me it’s been over a year that you have the iPhone 4 you find yourself blocked.
For this there is a solution, which consists in recalibrating the home button.
- The Home button only responds every second time.
- Double pressing works only very rarely and you have to try it several times.
Follow these steps in order.
Open iPhAccess 5.0 from your device or any other application.
Press the Power button for a few seconds until the red slider is displayed to switch off the device, then release the Power button without touching the screen.
Now press the Home button until the device is back on the SpringBoard.
Test your Home button now
- Back to SpringBoard from an application with support
- Multitasking dock display with double tap
If like me it works now wonderfully and it is that it was a bad calibration of your button. If the problem persists then it is a hardware problem. We therefore advise you to go to an Apple Store or to carry out a repair in a specialized store. There are many in Paris for example…
Don’t forget to tell us if it worked for you 😉
