Can I repair my home button with a kit?
I’ve been looking for an answer to my problem so I apologize if it’s been answered elsewhere as I haven’t found it.
I have been using my iPhone 6s Plus with a cracked screen for some time now.
During this time frame, the lower portion of my display had lost bits of glass exposing the region around my home button. Foolishly, I continued using it for as long as I possibly could.
Well, while pulling my phone out of my pocket, the home button snagged a thread in my pocket and torn completely through the ribbon cable. I held onto the button and have been using the on-screen home button found in the settings area.
My question is am I able to purchase a home button repair kit and swap my home button with the home button the repair kit comes with and maintain use of Touch ID?
Having not seen one of these kits in person, I didn’t know if it was possible to easily swap the button that would be included with the flex ribbon cable or if that button permanently attached to said ribbon cable.
Any insight is appreciated!
