    Nope! Never happened to me before. Try bringing it to an Apple store? Or try a hard reset

    No I haven't but I have worried about it. I sometimes worry that if it's stop working I'll have to use that accessory button that you activate from the settings. Maybe 10 years ago when I had a blackberry, the ball would always cause problems. I'd have to open and clean it. My friends who had models with the buttons eventually had to replace them. I was a little worried switching from android that I would end up having problems with a physical button once again.

    I actually just had that happen this morning, and it has happened once before. I have to leave my phone be for a few minutes and then it goes back to normal. Both times have happened when I've been within an app.

    If you live near an Apple Store make an appointment

    Well, then I guess it's just buggy… – weird new world: buttons that aren't buttons…

    I'd hope these home buttons don't fail. Wasn't that a primary reason for the change in the home button? To reduce the failure rates? I personally haven't experienced any issues.

    Well, I have another problem: sometimes my home button acts up and when I click it it feels like it clicks a thousand times while I rest my finger... Do y'all know what I mean? But then I do a home button reset and everything is getting back to normal.
    It mostly happens when I charge it by using my MacBook.

    Is this a 7/7plus or a 6/6s?

    7 Plus
    I rest my finger on the home button after "clicking" it to unlock the device and while my finger rests on it the Taptic Engine gives feedback a thousand times per second so Siri pops up and it goes back to normal after a home button reset

    The 7 and 7 plus don't have a physical home button

    ETA: well its physically there but it's not an actual button
