How to Fix a Home Button on iPhone 6: A Step-by-Step Guide

If your iPhone 6 home button isn't working, don't worry! You can easily fix it yourself with a few simple steps. To start, you'll need to get some 98-99% isopropyl alcohol, which can be found in most hardware stores. Using a cotton swab, dropper, or tissue, apply 2-3 drops of the alcohol directly to the home button, avoiding the screen. Then, use a narrow, dull object (such as the eraser on the back of a pencil) to repeatedly tap the home button and let the alcohol seep into the frame.

Be careful not to break anything inside your iPhone! If you have a Touch ID-enabled iPhone, you should make an appointment at the Genius Bar in your nearest Apple Store for Apple to repair the home button for free. Use the tip of a spudger to disconnect the home button cable connector by pushing it up and away from the home button. If anyone other than Apple repairs your iPhone, the Home button will work just like it did before the iPhone 5S, without the Touch ID feature. If you're having trouble exiting apps and returning to the Home screen, it's recommended to do a DFU restore for a broken home button.

This will require holding down the Home button while entering DFU restore mode. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can always take your iPhone to a repair shop for professional help. If you don't want to replace or repair your Home button, there is another option. You can use an on-screen button that appears whenever you need to access the Home screen, activate Siri, or get all the options you would normally see when you double-tap the Home button.

This is an easy way to continue using your iPhone without a working Home button. No matter what option you choose, make sure to be careful when trying to fix your iPhone 6 home button. If done correctly, you'll be able to get back to using your phone in no time!.
