If you have an iPhone 5s or later, and that iPhone has a Home button, or if you have an iPad that offers Touch ID, you can set it up to work as a passcode for your iPhone or iPad and App Store purchases and for apps like 1Password or Notes. If your iPhone or iPad doesn't have a Home button, you'll want to read our article on how to set up Face ID instead. If you're not sure if your device has Touch ID, see the full list of compatible devices at the end of this article. Using Touch ID is as simple as placing your finger on your Home button, which is where Touch ID resides. Touch ID recognizes your fingerprints, up to five of them. But first you'll need to set up Touch ID and allow it to be used across your device.

If you have an iPhone 6s or later, you can turn on Siri by saying, “Hey, Siri” even when your iPhone isn’t plugged in. However, you also have the option to press and hold your Home button to activate Siri. With iOS 11 on iPhone, you can now turn press and hold to activate Siri off and reply solely on activating Siri with your voice by saying, “Hey, Siri.” If you often accidentally activate Siri when pressing your Home button, this is a great way to stop that from happening. Here’s how to turn off Press Home for Siri and instead only activate with Hey, Siri on iPhone.

The triple- and double-click shortcuts are designed to let you easily maneuver through a few features of your iPhone when pressing your Home button multiple times. The double-click shortcut lets you find the recent apps you’ve used, and the triple-click shortcut allows you to quickly jump to Accessibility shortcuts you’ve set. However, the triple- and double-click Home commands have a default setting that might be too fast for some to push. My 83-year-old grandmother has an iPhone and she has difficulty pressing her Home button in quick succession due to arthritis in her hands. Whatever your reason, here’s how to slow down the triple- and double-click shortcuts on iPhone.

On previous models of iPhone, you could force restart your iPhone (known as a hard restart) by holding the Home button and your Sleep/Wake button at the same time. However, the iPhone 7 Home button isn’t really a button at all. It uses Haptic feedback to create the feeling of pressing a button. Perhaps this caused an issue with using the Home button as a means to restart the device. The iPhone 7 or 7 Plus requires you hard restart your iPhone with different buttons this time around. Here’s how to force restart your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.

With iOS 10, press Home to open means you have to click the Home button to actually navigate to your Home screen. You’ll see at the top of Lock screen, when you use Touch ID, it will say Unlocked but it won’t open to Home until you press your Home button. And if you have Raise to Wake disabled, unlocking your iPhone takes two presses of the Home button. Press Home to open can be disabled in Settings by turning on Rest Finger to Open. Here’s how to disable press Home to open with iOS 10 on iPhone.
