    A couple of weeks ago I purchased an iPad mini and its a fantastic device. However, just a couple of days ago I've noticed that when I gently run my finger back and fourth on the Home Button I can feel its very slightly loose. Also when I shake the device I can here a slight noise coming from the area the Home Button is. Is this normal?

    Pretty much - All home buttons are different, each one has different characteristics :)

    Luckily with gestures you never have to touch it!

    Don't you need it to activate Siri? :confused:

    With AssistiveTouch (in General Settings, Accessibility), you can do all with the touch screen instead of the home button.
