    Is there anyway to make the home button on the IP7 completely silent? The click is quit noticeable compared to the old button which was near silent.

    You're joking, right? My home button is completely silent. I only feel the haptic feedback.

    I don't believe there is. And my Home Button is quiet. I hardly hear anything.

    I have to hold the bottom speaker to my ear and then I'm only hearing a faint haptic sound.

    No it's not completely silent. Not even close.

    Yes, it is close, at least on my 7 Plus.

    That is not a sound produced by the Taptic Engine... if it is, the same sound will be present when you scroll through the alphabets in your Contacts, and other system services that generates the haptic feedback.

    Subjectivity is subjective.

    Definitely makes a noise, when clicking. It's not silent, although it's not loud enough to be troublesome I would still like it to be silent. My question was if you could operate it with zero noise

    Not right now I guess. I've hoped that Apple included an option to turn off the haptic feedback from the home button as well as the sound, and they as usual did what they do best in offering little UX customizability lol.

    Settings>General>Home Button (choose 1)

    If that's still too much, you can turn off haptic feedback system wide:
    Settings>Sound & Haptics>System Haptics

    It wasn't a complaint, just a question. Perfectly happy with the device

    To me it sounds just as loud as my old 6 with the second setting. It clicks just like the force trackpad on mac.

    I hear it too. It is soft, but it's definitely there.
    Ignore the trolls.

    I used to click the side of the home button to reduce/stop the home button "click" on previous iPhones. It annoys me that the haptic feedback is accompanied by an audible click from the speaker - sure, it's unnoticeable most of the time, but I find it unnecessarily loud at night when I'm laying next to my kids or wife when they're sleeping and I'm trying to catch up on emails, etc. I think it's quite noticeable, and in my opinion serves no real purpose.

    why even have to ever "click" the home button? You can set up raise to wake, and turn off the setting where you need to click the home button a second time to unlock the phone. From there, just use 3D touch to multitask/return to the home screen.

    You would never actually have to press the button and it would be dead silent at night :)

    I press the home button to return to the home screen. Have been doing so since 2007.

    You can operate your phone without using the home button. Settings > General > accessibility > Assistive Touch is 100% silent.

    I don't like having a big ugly square obscuring the screen. ;) Nor do I like removing the oleophobic coating from a specific area of the screen (which I'd be doing by invoking the 3D Touch multitasking shortcut). Although I do appreciate the suggestion(s), what I'd prefer is that Apple not force audio feedback to accompany haptic feedback. How hard would it be to give people a CHOICE?

    if you are afraid of rubbing off the oleophobic coating you should not be using touch screen devices. The control can be placed and moved anywhere on the screen. It's your CHOICE where to put/move it.

    I disagree. Those of us who have differing opinions aren't necessarily trolls - just folks with differing opinions. :).
