The iPhone 7 and iOS 10 feature a number of different settings that will feel strange if you are used to different iPhone models or iOS versions. For example, your screen might be turning on whenever you pick up your iPhone. You may find that you like some of these changes, while there are others that you will immediately try to deactivate.
One of the big changes to the iPhone 7, however, is the Home button.
It is no longer a mechanical button that you press. Now the phone’s software provides feedback that simulates a button press, and you can control how that feedback feels.
When you first set up your iPhone 7, you selected one of three different settings for this feature. If you find that you don’t like your first choice, then follow the steps below to see how to use one of the other Home button click settings.
