How To Use any iPhone’s Touch ID Sensor as Capacitive Home Button



Apple had introduced the 2nd Gen Touch ID with the recently launched iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. According to the company, the latest Touch ID can unlock the device in half of the time taken by the Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Now we can even use the Touch ID as a Home button, it works same as the capacitive buttons on Android.

With this new tweak, you don’t even need to press the Home button. All it require is just a tap on the Touch ID instead of pressing with some force. The devices starting from iPhone 5S to the latest iPhone 6S and 6S Plus will work with this tweak since these are the only device to include Touch ID.  This tweak is more helpful for the users who had iPhones with non-working Home button.
