Was the home button design updated on the iPhone 5 mid-product cycle?

    I ask because I had my iPhone 5 swapped at the Apple Store today due to an issue with the speaker, and on the new phone, the home button has a much more positive click requiring less force than the old one did.

    I don't know if the old one just wore out and thus felt different, or if they changed the design. Does anyone know if they did?

    Old phone was a release day iPhone 5, new one is an AWS-capable one from a more recent run.

    i wouldn't read anything into it. i've owned many iphones (even multiples of the same model), and before the iphone 5s every home button to me has felt and sounded different. some mushier than others, and some clickier.

    Your old phones home button likely just degraded with use and the new phone is new so it feels diferent.
