Calibrating Home button in iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
Over time, the majority of iOS device owners may have a small, but quite annoying problem with the Home button, which starts to respond to pressing only every other time. Usually it doesn't happen right away, but after about 1,5-2 years from the purchase date.
Luckily, there is an elegant way for the mobile operating system to calibrate Home button, taking into account its "physical disability".
After applying this method you'll probably notice that iOS has become more responsive to pressing "Home" button during heavy work with your mobile gadget.
Calibrating process has few simple steps:
- First, run any application that was originally part of default programs on iOS. For example, Weather, Stocks, Clock and so on.
- Once the app is opened, press and hold the Power button until the familiar "Slide to power off" appears, but do not touch this slider.
- Now hold the Home button for 10-12 seconds, this will result in a force shut down of the built in application.
That's it! From now on the only physical button on the front panel of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch should properly respond to touch as if just purchased.
