    If you take your iPhone out of the box and try to press the home button before turning it on, it does not move.

    Don't freak out: Your iPhone is fine. The 'click' comes from the taptic engine inside the phone (the button itself doesn't actually move).

    If the phone is off, there's no click.

    I think that the Taptic technology is not working on my 7+. The phone doesn't respond to my finger, I need to actually press it like with the 6. Am I doing something wrong?

    No.. You still have to PRESS it.. Are you thinking you can just tap it now because its capacitive? The button behaves very similar to 3D Touch now and can tell the difference between a tap as well as varying levels of pressure. Whatever pressure you previously used on the mechanical button, you still have to use on the new button.

    Yes, but if you want it to act the way it used to, you can go into Settings and change it back. That's if you had it set up to recognize your fingerprint.
