Okay obviously the removal of the Home Button and Touch ID from the iPhone X has really affected almost all Apple fans. Not everyone hates Face ID, but come on – there was just something satisfying about clicking a button, even though that was removed in the iPhone 7 – it still felt like something was there. Well, you can now bring that similar experience back to your brand new shiny iPhone X.

To replicate the features of the Home Button on your iPhone X, head over to Settings, then General, then Accessibility and then AssistiveTouch and turn this on. This will now bring up a virtual button that can be located anywhere on your screen. It does resemble an iPhone Home Button quite well, and you can then start customising it’s options to replicate a real physical button.

 

To do this, head over to the Custom Actions menu and map the actions as shown below –

  • Single tap takes you Home
  • Double tap opens Multitasking (App Switcher)
  • Long press invokes Siri

We suggest getting used to the fact that the Home Button will never see the light of day in any future iPhone’s, so it’s best to get used to the new “Bar” as i’ll call it, instead of the Home Button, but i’m sure everyone enjoys becoming nostalgic and i believe this is the best way to go about it.
