How to Customize the iPhone 7/7 Plus Home Button
With the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus, you now have a new and enhanced version of the Home button on your device. If you have used the device, you would have noticed that it’s completely different than what it used to be. It used to be a mechanical button but the company has changed it to a solid state button for a variety of reasons.
The new button now requires no hard pressing that you had to do on your older iPhone. On this new iPhone, all you need to do is put a little pressure on the button and it will sense it and give you a haptic feedback indicating the action has been performed. This is more of an on-screen button found on some Android devices.
The button also has smart features that can distinguish between a tap and a press so the right function is performed every time you use it.
One of the things you can do with the Home button on your red iPhone 7 or 7 Plus is that you can customize the feedback strength of the Home button so that it adjusts to how you use your iPhone. That way it will work exactly the way you want and you will not have to adjust yourself to the default settings.
Here’s how you can go about customizing the Home button on your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus:
