    There is no way to disable it.

    How do you know if "home button" is "pressed" if you disable haptic feedback?

    Or, you can try to disable haptic feedback completely and see if there is any effect.

    You know because the screen will move lol.

    Apple should give users options.

    Apple does give option, three of them.

    Apple decided that because the button does not move there must be some type of feedback.

    Just like other things in life, sometimes you just got to accept things for what they are. No "therapy" dogs included.

    Other phones have the option to disable any vibration on the Home Button! ;O)
    OnePlus and Huawei give you the option to turn it off entirely.

    I've tried the Home Button on the iPhone 7 and 7+ and find it really irritating and it's the one thing that stops me from upgrading to it..

    Personally, I think it's a massive oversight by Apple in not allowing users to choose whether to have it, or not.

    In now way, for me, does it feel like the "feel" of pressing the Home Button on the 6s+ ;O(

    So you have woke this old thread to tell us that you will not be getting an iPhone because you can not turn off the haptic feedback?

    I did not even know this is an ancient thread lol. But he surely can disable the vibration completely, which is not entirely he wants.

    You can glitch it by leaving it on for months I think, I saw it at the t mobile and Walmart displays for the iPhone 7.

    Both times there was no haptic response from the home button, but force touch would give one lol!!

    I didn't upgrade because of the horrible vibration. And no choice to turn it off. It feels strange. My brother says it still bothers him.

    Bad choice of words!

    Tl;Dr: After being on for many months on end, the haptic feedback for the phone just bugged itself out and stopped working, but the force touch still responded with a vibration.

    Ever since using that, I've been trying to find a way to disable the home button! It feels quite nice feeling no physical response from a button but having it function in terms of navigating the phone!

    I don't take it as a vibration.
    It's kinda like a click behind the glass that makes it feel that you pressed a button.
    It makes it easier to use I think without having a mechanical button any more.
    It gives you the feedback that your push/touch registered.

    Yes. This is a much better description. I wish I could like it, but just settled with my SE.

    I got used it pretty quick and like it better now.
    Using a regular mechanical push home button feels weird now :)
