Step #2. Next up, you will have to press and hold the Power button located on the right side of your iPhone and click the Home button at the same time. (It will prevent the activation of Touch ID or Siri by accident.)

Your take:

When I came to know that Apple’s flagship smartphones of 2016 are going to have a pressure-sensitive Home button, I was curious to know how it would work and whether it’d be as functional as the physical Home button. But once I spent some time with the virtual Home button, I was quite impressed with it.

The biggest advantage of this touch-sensitive Home button is that it has more longevity than its predecessor. Let me know what you think of it in the comments below.
