When preparing for a DIY home button replacement on your iPhone 4S, it’s important to have the right tools and a clear understanding of the process. Start by gathering a small Phillips screwdriver, a plastic spudger, and a replacement home button assembly.

Begin by powering off your iPhone 4S and removing the two screws located on either side of the charging port. Use the plastic spudger to carefully pry open the back cover of the iPhone, being mindful not to damage any internal components.

Once the back cover is removed, locate the home button assembly at the bottom of the device. Using the plastic spudger, gently pry the home button assembly from the iPhone. Be sure to disconnect any cables attached to the assembly before completely removing it.

Next, carefully align the replacement home button assembly with the corresponding slots in the iPhone 4S. Carefully reconnect any cables that were detached during the removal process.

Once the replacement home button assembly is securely in place, reattach the back cover of the iPhone and secure it with the two screws near the charging port. Power on your iPhone 4S and test the new home button to ensure it is functioning properly.
