iOS 8 has a Home button bug that opens the multitasking menu when you tap once. KPHAM left a comment on our post explaining that it is possible to fix this problem and force the Home button to work correctly.
Here are the steps to follow on your iOS 8 device:
STEP 1: Open an app. Any default iOS app. (Weather, Clock etc.)
STEP 2: Hold the Sleep/Wake button (Power) till the ‘Slide to power off’ appears.
STEP 3: Now press and hold the home button till the slide goes away and you get to the homescreen. Done. You’ll notice that the app is closed.
This should fix the calibration issues and make the Home button work on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Credit also goes to iOS Support on Twitter for explaining the steps. Here is what they have to say: “#HomeButton issue fix. Complete. You’ll notice that the app is closed. This should fix the calibration issues and make the home button work.”
Let us know if you still face any problems with your Home button.
