The iPhone is hailed as a revolutionary device in terms of navigation. It makes use of a single button (the home button) to control various actions. These include: returning to the home screen by pressing it once, unlocking the device with the latest touch ID technology, launching Siri by holding the button, and displaying a list of running applications by pressing it twice.
In the pass, Apple iPhone 4 and 4s had decide to secure the actual Home button to the display assembly with a rubber gasket and some adhesive surrounding it. The underlying cable went untouched for the most part. It connected to the dock connector and wove through the mid-frame to the front where the Home button sat on top of it. As Home button is the most common usage on the iPhone its get depressed and flattens and thus prone to failures. However, this problem can be annoying.
Apple include a “Assistive Touch” in iOS, which allow users whom Home button is malfunctioning to use on-screen, virtual controls. If you can’t get use to the on-screen touch, we can fix it for you.
One of the primary reasons for switching over to software buttons in smartphones is that hardware buttons accumulate wear rather quickly. Since they are constantly being pressed, they just act as another part that can be broken by heavy use. With all of the features of the home button, it is used quite often and may need frequent repairs.
Buttons are, in general, easy to replace or repair. The volume buttons, power button, silent button and home button are the simplest; home button ribbon replacement in particular takes the least time and effort. Hardware buttons may become unresponsive due to either damage to the button itself or the ribbon inside the iPhone.
A damaged iPhone home button can be especially problematic sometimes due to the Apple iPhone 5s unique Touch ID system. This system requires that the Touch ID sensor in the phone can only be used by that phone, meaning that replacement parts are of no use.
Some speculate that the Touch ID sensor chip is linked to the processor of the phone at the moment that it is attached and the unit is powered on. This chip is then permanently linked to that processor.
Of course, the Touch sensor in the iPhone home button is the same as the fingerprint sensor; without this chip, you cannot unlock your phone. Most likely, Apple has put this system in place to prevent people from gaining access to the content of stolen phones by replacing the hardware. As such it may be possible to replace the Touch sensor with a factory-new sensor.

How do buttons break?
Most of the time, a dropped iPhone is the cause for a damaged button. The impact can cause a sudden intense vibration that knocks a connecting cable loose or causes a crack. The impact can also cause the buttons to get jammed into the phone (though it is generally easy to fix iPhone button that is stuck in this manner).

This is inevitable and will happen to all users who use their phones for several years, especially for the iPhone 6s home button.
