home button not working but touch id is
here's an odd one. for all the home button issues i've faced (6, 6s, 7 & 8) this is a first.
i have an iphone 8 with a home button that doesn't want to work - it was a real PITA getting from the hello screen to setup and activation without it - but i managed to get to the home apps page. first thing i did was try and set a finger print, which worked fine. just the home button would not respond. i tried the Home Button settings to choose the taptic response level - nothing.
so i turned on assistive touch and that worked as expected.
all of the (OEM) home button issues i've seen have been that the Touch ID stops working, but the home button function is fine (not unlike replacing an OEM button with a JC or YF button).
so this is a first - Touch ID works, home button functionality does not.
any thoughts on how to troubleshoot and hopefully fix it without having to put in a 3rd party button? the IOS is 16.1.1 and i'm afraid that when it sees the non EOM button it's going to do that trick where it turns on assistive touch whether you want it or not (and turns on again after you've turned it off).
Es esta una buena pregunta?
