    So I'm sure you all know the noise from the home button comes out of the speakers.

    But after 2 months of owning I never knew this.

    If I click gently on the home button, it makes a quiet noise.

    If I press firmer, the noise is a little louder. My setting is at 1.

    Anyone else notice? Feels the vibration is a bit stronger too on the firmer clicks as well.

    I am afraid all I hear is the Taptic motor. Not sure about sound from the speakers.

    I did. Cover the speakers and you can't hear anything. It's not a really Button, it's not going to make any noise.

    Yes this is nothing new and normal behavior. It makes sense doesn't it?

    Press harder = louder and stronger click

    Press gently = softer and less feedback on the tap back.

    Mine does this too. It's supposed to simulate a regular button. All is normal and well! I really love the new button that isn't a button!

    Cover up the speaker and try again.

    To vibrate the haptic motor needs free air. Can't vibrate in a sealed chamber.

    I'm getting an all around consistent vibration from mine. But I didn't know the Haptic button sound transits through the speaker. I thought it was audible enough just hearing it in general.
