Unstick that stuck home button.

Ahhh, Push it!

iDevices are great. Over 60% of media are now consumed on Tablets and smartphones. I tend to baby all my electronics, but even then, I occasionally get an incredible annoying problem with my all devices. And that is the “stuck home button”. If you always had an iPhone since day one like me, you’ve probably run into this problem before. If you’re lucky and your device is still under warranty, you can always take it back to Apple and they’ll replace it. But if you’re not under warranty, here is a simple, 3 step process, to getting it fixed. Here we go!

Things you will need:

  • Rubbing Alcohol (70%) in the form of liquid or cleaning pad.
  • Q-tip (if you don’t have the cleaning pad)

Step 1


Power down your device by holding down the power button. Slide to power off.

Step 2


Take the alcohol cleaning pad OR Q-tip with a bit of alcohol at the tip and swirl it around the Home button. Press it about a few times.

Step 3


 Repeat steps 2 and 3, three-four times.

Power on and you’re done!

   This should help you save a few bucks and a lot of effort in trying to replace a home button. Let me know if this works for you in the comment below!
