    Hi,

    I've pre-ordered my 7 plus but it'll take a while to ship. I'm wondering, for anyone who might have the device already, what does the non-pressable home button feel like with the taptic feedback? Does it actually feel / sound like you're depressing a key? Or is it more like the haptic feedback from on-screen buttons on Android devices?

    Yep!

    And it annoyed the heck out of me because I always feel like pressing it

    Interesting... It might take some time to get used to that!

    Apple did a great job making the haptic feedback feel kind of like a button is being pressed. It's definitely different and will take some for me to get used to. Ask me again this time next week!

    Definitely!

    But, at least there's haptic feedback. So that's that. I personally like having a feedback of my actions (hence why I need the keyboard clicks ).

    I'm torn... it's good that there are fewer points of failure and ingress, but like you, I appreciate real, tactile, clicky feedback to let me know I've actually DONE something.

    I fiddled with one at the Apple Store today and kept trying to double press the Home button to switch apps and, of course, that didn't work so I finally gave up

    I tried double tap, triple tap, long touch, force touch and it didn't work. So I couldn't figure it out..

    Huh... I can't imagine they've done away with this feature entirely. There must be some other way to get to it. My phone will arrive shortly and that'll be the first thing I check!

    I'm loving the new home "button". I like the feel and response much more than the traditional button

    Definitely feels different and most certainly tricks your brain into thinking it actually presses when you touch it. It's a neat, if unnecessary change.

    Double tap works fine.

    I'm now used to the new button, nearly. At first it seemed awful.

    Love it. Feels quite natural to me already, and I had no problem accessing the recent apps pages. I'm very impressed!

    I like it. With the home button setting on 3 it almost feels like an actual button. On 2 it feels like something else is going on, 1 was a little too weak for my liking.

    I like the way it feels. Actually I like it a lot! It feels very good and the double tap works pretty good. I have had my iPhone 7 for a couple hours and the old home button already seems outdated, lol. Just one less part to break

    It's different. But the more I use the phone the more I get use to the feel. I think for some long time iPhone users like me it may take a bit of use to become second nature to use.
