The buttons on the outside of your iPhone control a lot of what happens on the inside of your iPhone. When the buttons stop working, a lot else does too!

Damaged buttons can cause a variety of problems, including small, annoying things like forcing you to use a virtual home button to bigger, more significant problems like not being able to turn on your iPhone at all!

While you can fix almost any software problem from the comfort of your home, problems with buttons aren’t always so easy. Sometimes there’s a software workaround, but it’s not as easy as having physical buttons that work normally.

Our iPhone buttons articles will show you what to do when one of your buttons stops working. We’ll also show you what you can do to get those buttons fixed as quickly as possible!
