    I wish I could get that minute of my life back. If your phone gets wet… wipe it off. Thanks for the helpful tip!

      dude, shut it, the rice tip was good…fucking troll elsewhere

      • guest

        yea it was a good tip.. if your iq is below 20

    I’m sorry Joshua, but this is not useful at all to any iPhone user with a brain. Most home button failures are not a calibration issue, a phone dropped in water should be immediately turned off and put in rice or silica gel for days, not hours, and anyone should be able to figure out if something is stuck in a port. Most common problems would include poor battery life, broken display, unable to charge, lack of storage space for updates, etc. Plus, lines like “easily one of the most used buttons” are just filler – no need – reduce your script down to the essentials. Hopefully this criticism is helpful and not hurtful – good luck with your future work.

    • christopher rubin

      Agree. That home button tip makes no sense. Wish it did though!

      • NorthernNight

        I do as well! I do enjoy your video’s and have learned from them Joshua. PLEASE redo this one and go slower next time! Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us, don’t stop!

        @NorthernNight:disqus thank you so much for your support. In order to do the first tip what you’ll want to do is hold on the power button until you see the “slide to turn off” button on-screen. Once this screen has appeared release the power button and begin only holding the home button until you are brought to your home screen. This process calibrates the home button and hopefully fixes the button more to your liking.

      My top tip would be to slow down and don’t gabble through your tips. Like other I haven’t got a clue what you meant on your home button tip!

  • Joe Spicer
