Many of IOS user do not like the hardware home button on their iOS devices like iPhone or iPad. The reason behind is to avoid damage on the hardware home button. It is costly to replace the hardware home button as all the original part will need to be imported from the manufacturer. The physical damage on the button could be caused by several reasons like improper handling when pressing, overstress on pushing the button, too frequent using the button and so on. Hence, most of the users (surveyed from my group of friends) are not using the home button. They prefer to have a virtual software home button to replace the hardware home button. How can we do it??
