    I have iPhone7 and would like to map double tap or single tap to activate home screen. For example when I double tap home button now it will activate reachibilty... I would like to make it to activate home screen. Is this possible to manage with settings. I hate to press home button to reach home screen, would be better to just touch or tap home button and achieve the same. Is this possible?

    Welcome to iMore!

    I don’t have access to an iPhone with a home button anymore &, honestly, can’t remember much about the customization. But I did a little research & it doesn’t seem as though the double click can be changed. Hopefully, someone with an iPhone 7 or 8 can chime in.

    The short answer is no, you cannot customize the behavior of the home button like that. A single press goes to the home screen.
