Sorry, but it’s true. If you’re iPhone 7 home button is broken, whether it’s an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7+, there is nothing you can do to repair the home button. It’s dead. Kaput.
There are workarounds, which we’ll get to later in this post. But the fact remains that if your iPhone 7 home button is damaged, and you want to make use of the amazing Touch ID feature (among other features), you’ll need to purchase a new iPhone 7.

You Are Taking a Risk by Getting Your iPhone 7 Repaired
Let us preface by saying our technicians at Forever Wireless are among the most highly-trained iPhone 7 repair technicians in the industry. However, we can’t say the same for other cell phone repair stores. If a cell phone repair technician is unfamiliar with an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7+, and when disassembling the phone, he or she may accidentally damage the home button, rendering the device unusable to most users standards.
This is the risk you’ll be taking if you trust your iPhone 7 repair needs to anyone besides the expert technicians at Forever Wireless. At Forever Wireless, we take extra precautions to keep your iPhone 7 home button intact while repairing any damage to your device.
You’ll want to be extremely careful where you are getting your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus repaired, as an untrained technician can easily damage the home button on an iPhone 7. And if that happens, well…you’ll be one unhappy customer, to say the least.
The Workaround for Your iPhone 7 Home Button Not Working
As previously mentioned, there is a workaround if your iPhone 7 home button is not working. If the home button is damaged, you can use the AssistiveTouch feature. Essentially, your home button is now on your screen. However, you’ll lose the Touch ID feature, which means you’ll lose the ability to add your fingerprint for security purposes.
The lesson here is to be very careful who you choose to repair your device. Because if your home button is compromised, say hello to AssistiveTouch and goodbye to Touch ID…and your home button.
