    Clicking the home button in a app, closes the app a second later. First world problems ofcource, but if it can be faster....i remember a multi tasking tweak back in the iphone 3gs/4 days, wich made multitasking pop up immediatly after double tapping home.

    Is this fixable?

    Doesnt work. There is some kind of delay in the home button.

    Just try it yourself. Tapping a icon immediatly starts the animation to get into the app. But pressing the home button has a 1 second delay.
    This also happens when doing other things.

    I hope its not hardware delay. But software.
    Remember that there was a tweak once like i said in post 1 wich could make the home button react immediatly.

    Do you have Triple Click on as an Accessibility Shortcut? I remember having that same issue for months and being so annoyed because I couldn't pinpoint the issue, then I realized it was that causing the 1 second delay in home button response.

    This has always been that way. It's because single-pressing the home button shows the springboard but double-pressing it shows the app switcher. So when you press the home button, iOS waits until the double-press window is over than shows the springboard.

    It can probably be changed somehow by shortening that window, but I don't know how.

    I was going to suggest this same thing. Activating triple click slows down the response time of your single and double clicks. Big mistake to turn that on unless you really need it.

    Hmm. Someone needs to make a tweak that halfs the delay. I can double press for multi tasking really fast.

    Did you even try our suggestions?.....

    The home button response isn't naturally slow, it's very possible that what you're experiencing is the result of triple click being activated.

    Its not activated. The delay is approx 1 second. I want to half that.

    In Activator, setting up an action to go to "first springboard page" is wayyyyy faster than the delayed home button. I have mine set up to a "three finger pinch" when in an application to go to "first springboard page." It's AT LEAST 2x faster than the physical (or even the simulated) home button. Hope this helps.

    Settings/ General / Acessibility / Home Button / Click Speed
    If it is Slow or Slowest, set it to Default.

    My delay on my 6s is a fraction of a second. A second sounds way too long.
