How to Get Back A Home Button On-Screen On iPhone 13
|Where is the home button on iPhone 13?|
iPhone 13 is the missing home button
Apple is trying to remove out the home button on iPhones. So the iPhone will only be using gesture control. This is why you won’t be seeing the physical home button on your iPhone smartphones just like it used to be on the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 7 series.
The Home button has been gone from the iPhone series for a while now. The home button disappears starting from the days of the iPhone X and then the iPhone XR and the iPhone XS Max, including iPhone 13. Well, this did not start from the iPhone 13 Pro.
In fact, if you are not happy that the home button is missing on your device, you can still bring it back. In this post, we will be showing you how to get back the home button on your iPhone.
Apple, however, still leaves an open door for users who don’t want to go with the gestures. And it’s the on-screen Home button, also known as AssistiveTouch.
When you enable AssistiveTouch, a hovering button will appear on your screen with various functionalities and serving as a home button. You’ll still need to use gestures to fully unlock your phone, but once you enable it, you’ll have full access to a home button on your screen with AssistiveTouch.

AssistiveTouch vs Home button on iPhone
AssistiveTouch offers more functionality compared to a Home button since you can use it to access other supported features. Though it may not take the place of a physical home button, it’ll be the closest iPhone users will get if they’re using an iPhone 13. Users who would like to have a physical home button on their iPhone devices can opt out for the latest model that features one, which is the SE.
How to remove the home button on iPhone
Removal of the home button isn’t specific to the iPhone series since many phone manufacturers around the world started transitioning into full-screen designs.
Home buttons are often sacrificed for more screen space, but it’s still possible to find models with Home buttons, especially on the Android side of the competition.
