If you are a rampant iPhone user (like me) and have worn out your poor home button then I have a solution for you!

iPhone home button screenYou can add a little ‘accessibility’ button on the touch screen that can be used instead of your home button to stop you from jabbing at your phone every time you’d like to return to the main screen.

  1. Go to ‘Settings’
  2. Scroll down and click on ‘General’
  3. Scroll down and click on ‘Accessibility’
  4. Scroll down and turn on ‘AssistiveTouch’

A little moveable button will appear on the side of your screen that you can now press instead of your home button to return you back to the main menu. Press and drag it around the screen to move it if it’s in your way.
