It may happen to encounter trouble coping with your Apple device, when your home button is working very hard or it doesn’t work at all. We provided a few tips and tricks for being able to use your smartphone even if the button is incapable of being pressed.
- Open Settings -> General -> Accessibility
- Switch Assistive Touch ON, that is right under Physical & Motor
- Afterwards you can see a small touch button in the lower right corner so tap on it for accessing the virtual home button
The tip allows you to use your iOS gadget without having to repair the home button itself. So if can’t exit an app and the home button is broken, simply turn the gadget OFF and then ON and click on the virtual Home Screen that you have just enabled.
Another useful tip for fixing your Home Button is:
- Open a default iOS app and press and hold down the Power button until you get the “Slide to power Off”.
- Afterwards press and hold the Home button until the “Slide to power Off” screen has disappeared.
SiriBoard Cydia Tweak provides the possibility of enabling the virtual personal assistant Siri from an app icon.
Siri could be launched either by holding down the Home button or going for the “Raise To Speak” feature. Now users can turn to another direction, use SiriBoard with just a touch.
So download and install the app for allowing Siri to come with useful pieces of advice or indications. Coming with the Siri picture as icon, the app will appear on the Home screen after the jailkbreak package has been installed.
SiriBoard comes in handy to those that are sick and tired of activating the personal assistant whenever they need a piece of information by holding down the Home button for a couple of moments.
Redmond Pie provides the following description of the app:
“SiriBoard is very similar to the LockAssistant offering (also developer by Freemanrepo) in the sense that it gives quick, one touch access to the activation of Siri making it not only quicker, but also taking the strain off the poor home button. SiriBoard is a very simplistic tweak which in no way offers any additional functionality to Siri as it merely exists to offer a quick launch solution for the voice analysis software.”
