See What Happens When Your iPhone 7 Home Stops Working


If your iPhone 7 Home Button stops functioning  , Apple has a neat way of keeping the phone operational: an on-screen home button .

A MacRumors forum member iwayne had some issues with his iPhone last week. When he turned it back on, he was greeted with this message

The home sensor on his iPhone 7 had stopped  working properly , so iOS 10 displayed a message instructing him to take it in to get serviced. But the cool part is that Apple automatically put a virtual home button on his screen so that he could use the phone in the meantime .

The virtual home button itself isn't really new, it's part of Assistive Touch, one of Apple's accessibility features. Still, having it enabled automatically when the home sensor fails-remember, the iPhone 7 no longer has a real button, just a sensor that looks like a button-is a new trick.

It's  rumored that Apple will be killing the home button with next year's iPhone. Apple fanboys would s be sad if the home button goes away. (Moving parts or not, it's part of the iPhone experience.) But it's nice to be reminded that there will be a virtual option, one way or another.
