Why Can I Change My iPhone's Home Button Sensitivity?

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (and probably future models of the iPhone) don't have a physical Home button like previous models of the iPhone. If you turn off your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, you'll notice that you can't press down the “button” at all!

The Home button on the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus uses a taptic xcngine to give feedback when you press it. Apple realized that this change might cause difficulty for some people and that's why they implemented the ability to change an iPhone's Home button sensitivity!
