Re: iPhone 4 home button not working properly...

As it is more than a year old apple may not help and charge £139 out of warranty replacement.
It has been a widly reported issue.
Make a genius appointment and see what they say you can always refuse the out of warranty and live with the issue but apple may help.
If you do go to apple post how you get on

iPad Pro 12.9” 2020 256gb refresh o2 family discount
Apple Watch series 4
My first mobile was in 1995 a CM-R111 from sony on Cellnet.

Re: iPhone 4 home button not working properly...

Try this .... it works!
1.) Open any application
2.) Press and hold the power button until the slide to shutdown swipe bar appears.
3.) Release Power button
4.) Press and hold Home button Lightly
until screen returns to icon screen
5.) Enjoy your functioning home button!!!
This procedure recalibrates the home button after normal wear or heavy use.
I hope it works for you too. Rgds, Jim

My Home button was unresponsive and the re-calibration worked - now it's working as expected. Smiley Very Happy
