Today, the home button on my iPhone 4 died.
I push to my heart’s content, but nothing happens. Everything else works: The top button, the volume buttons, the touch screen. But the home button is useless.
I called Apple Support, and the specialist walked me through some basic steps like rebooting, but he seemed to think it was a hardware issue. (Apparently, I am not the first to encounter this problem.) I will find out more tonight when I try a full restore through my home iTunes, the apparent last-ditch effort before sending the thing back to Apple headquarters.
I’ll update the blog as I learn more. But given my previous endorsement of the product, I felt I had to share a quick post.
Kind of ironic it happened on the day when Steve Jobs unveiled iOS 4.1.
