    I feel that pressing the home button in my new iPad Air is harder than with my iPhone 5 and also harder than in my old iPad 2.
    Is this the norm now?

    Can you quantify what you mean by "harder"? The home button on my air works perfectly fine.

    It does work. It just takes more pressure than my other imachines. I was wondering if it's normal.

    From what I can tell, the iPad air uses the newer "mechanical" home button that got introduced with the iPhone 5. It's more durable and clicks/feels better IMO. The iPad mini 1 and retina iPad mini use the old squishy home button that was found in older iPhones. It is probably a little harder than the iPad 2 home button, but it is IMO in a good way. Should feel similar to your iPhone 5 home button though.
