Unfortunately, your iOS device Home button can become a little sluggish over time. It works smoothly when you first buy an iPhone or iPad but eventually the Home button can become less responsive.
Fortunately, there is a simple trick that you can perform to recalibrate your Home button. iDownloadBlog provides that helpful tip and you should get the Home button considerably more responsive after preforming that trick.
How to recalibrate the Home button:
Step 1: Launch one of the stock applications on your device. The preinstalled apps like weather, YouTube, stocks, etc.
Step 2: When the app is launched, press and hold the Power button located at the top of the device until the ‘Slide to power off’ appears.
Step 3: Press and hold the iPhone home button. Keep the button depressed until the Slide to power off slider disappears and the application quits back to Springboard.
Step 4: Your iPhone’s Home button should now be just as responsive as ever.
