While Apple's iPhone models tend to be a reliable option for most consumers, their lack of buttons causes the main home and power buttons to fail after extended use. If you're such in this situation, the most common options are to get your phone replaced (if still under warranty) or try to take apart our phone and fix the problem yourself with replacement parts.
For some, these may not be viable options either due to an outdated warranty or you simply don't want to attempt to take apart your iPhone due to fear of making things worse. Given these circumstances, there is a built-in work-around that can help iPhone owners keep using the full features of their phone without the need to replace or repair a broken home or power button. This method works on all iOS devices as long as your running iOS 6 or higher.
