Sorry Folks, iPhone 7 Home Buttons Aren’t User Replaceable

WRITTEN BY JULIA BLUFF

Bad news for the DIY-inclined: looks like the home button in an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus can’t be replaced with a different one. If you break the button or rip the cable, you’ll have to go to the folks at the Genius Bar for a repair—or be stuck with a completely non-functioning home button.

....

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus appears to take this feature a step further. Home button replacement—or damage to the original home button cable—renders the button completely non-functional: no Touch ID and (here’s the new part) no return-to-menu ability. You can still navigate your phone by turning on Assistive Touch. But for all practical purposes, you’ve got a dead home button. One that you can’t fix on your own or at an independent repair shop.
