In the presentation of its new phones last September, Apple ensured that the renewed Home button that included the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is much more sensitive and it can offer different ways to configure the Home button on our device , this is due to Taptic Engine technology that includes such new Home button.
This new technology allows the button to look and feel like a button, but now it is not a button in itself as before, it is a touch sensitive area with a fingerprint reader, and is powered by a haptic motor , as it is used in the trackpad of the 12-inch MacBook, a technology that works in relation to how we press the button and that will allow us to perform faster actions, access messages, notifications, ringtones, etc.
How to set the Home button for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
Now when it is a static button, the Start button on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus is different from other iOS devices , now, instead of sinking when you press it, it detects the presence and pressure of your finger, so , when you press the Start button, you will notice a slight click.
Setting up the Home button on our iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus is really simple as it is offered to us during the initial configuration of the device, although if you skipped it so you just have to follow these simple steps to do it:
Unlock iPhone .
Go to Settings > General > Start button .
Select 1, 2 or 3 clicks, taking into account that 1 is the lightest click level and 3, the strongest. (You will notice the click more when you have the device in your hand than when you are on a surface, such as a table).
Pressing Home button on iPhone 7 is now easier
Since it is now easier to press the Home or Home button several times , you will realize that you can double or triple click much faster by mistake, if you had slowed the speed of the button in the section Accessibility , now it may you want to return to the default settings to avoid accidental double clicks.
Although Apple has changed the type of Home button, it still retains the utilities it had, including the triple click as an auxiliary button or the option of not having to press the Home button to unlock .
And to you, what do you think of the new features of the Home button of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus ?
