    Has anyone else experienced this with the new home button on the 7 or 7+?

    Around 80% of the time the button press feels normal. Every so often, however, the button has a subtle vibration right behind the click, which feels like a tiny buzz. I'm not sure if something inside is not aligned properly, or if it may be software related.

    I can't accurately reproduce it, it just seems to happen randomly.

    Has anyone else had this happen, and if so, did you exchange it, or reach any other resolution?

    Thanks!

    I have not experienced an issue such as this. I'm curious to find out what the cause is, though.

    I figure I will bring it in to the Apple Store eventually, I just wanted to see what other's experiences were on here first.

    It Very well could be a software glitch. Have you tried a hard reset?

    Of course this is just an estimate, but being that I have not really heard or read of this issue on any of these threads, It could be a hardware issue where you're in need of a replacement device. That is, if Apple chooses not to repair the issue.

    Have you tried to adjust the home button feedback - (settings, general, home button)? I know I had to test all three settings before I finally settled on one that felt realistic to me.

    That's exactly what it's like. Does it still happen?

    Yeah, the feedback feels great, but every now and then it feels like there is a shock or a light buzz in addition to the click.

    If it makes you feel any better.... I get the same thing once in awhile. I believe it has to do with the haptic feedback circuitry. It's not annoying to me but to be truthful, I really think this "fake" home button thing is something Apple could have done without.

    The same thing happens to me. Once in a great while the click will feel a crunch instead of the normal button press. Using home button setting 3
