Using an iPhone with no home button 04/03/10 - 15.56

If your home button breaks on your iPhone it’s easy to think that it’s game over. You have to turn off the phone each time you want to return to the home screen. But no! Luckily there is a workaround.

Setup steps
1. Put a passcode on your phone.

To change applications
1. Press the lock button to lock the phone.
2. Press the lock button to unlock the phone.
3. Slide to unlock.
4. Press “emergency call”.
5. Press the back arrow.
6. Key in your passcode.
7. This always returns to the homescreen.

It’s not ideal but it might seem somewhat more desirable than buying a new phone.
