    White iPhone users, will the HOME Button ever discolor from sunlight or office light since it is plastic?

    No.

    Apple already made sure of this before they released it.

    It is too early for anyone to know. The white one just came out, and the white converted ones used after market parts that can have a different material than the real one.

    No one has ever had a white home button on their iPhone so no one knows.

    Plastic materials that are exposed to UV rays (sunlight) can fade, in order to mitigate this they can add UV stabilizers to the plastic. This is used all of the time on the plastic in cars (the parts that are exposed).

    I think it is a safe assumption a plastic like that was used. These types of stabilizers have been used for years and have undergone several thousand hours of real life exposure and also time in a weather-Ometer that can mimic years of service.

    "EVER"? Eventually, it will no longer even be a white home button.
