    i own an iphone 5s.
    if the home button broke, could you replace it with an iphone 5 one? I never use the fingerprint scanner, so i'd only need a home button that is... a home button.
    i love how the previous iphones looked with the "normal" home button, blending it with the rest of the front, and i hate the fingerprint button because it has the metal ring around it. i know it's trivial, but sometimes it bugs me.
    it looks like the two home buttons are the same size, so the iphone 5 button would fit.

    I'm not sure it would work with the sensor in there. I've also noticed that the 5s home button is bigger. When you put a 5 in a 5s otter box defender the hole in the screen protector is bigger than the old home button.
