    Not really. I used to use it when my lock button stopped functioning on my iPhone 5.

    I've been using it since iOS 6

    It comes in handy when my iphone is mounted to my car because there's no home button jarring just a screen tap. I also find it more convenient while taking screenshots

    I have this fear that one fine morning my home button might just give up on me. So, I have been using assistive touch ever since I bought my iPhone.

    I use it mainly because I can screen cap and control volume buttons with one hand. I originally was using it when my lock button stopped working on my 5.

    Use it all the time. The home button takes allot of wear and tear, I figured any help saving the home button is the way to go.

    I used it for quite a long time because it help reduce the wear and tear of the Home and Power buttons. However, I noticed that there is a bug with the Notification Center and Control Center and stopped using it.

    I also have been using it for sometime and haven't experienced any of the issues you stated. Can you give us a little more info on the bug your experiencing??

    I dont use assistive touch at all. The Home button was put there for a reason.

    Ive owned every model iPhone since the original. I have NEVER had a Home button fail. The "takes a lot of wear and tear" argument is pure poppycock.

    Do you also use headphones to save wear and tear on the speaker? SMH

    Agreed. I've had every iPhone except the original and 3GS and never had "wear and tear" issues for the home button. And I use my phone many hours a day so my lack of issue isn't from lack of use. I haven't had any trouble with any of my iPads either.

    I've actually been having some odd issues with my home button, so I'm using Assistive Touch until I figure out my odd problem that involves Siri. I know...long story.
