Here is a work-around, if you had the misfortune of your iPhone’s home button breaking or wearing out on you.
Step One: Go to Settings.
Step Two: Select General.
Step Three: Select Accessibility.
Step Four: Select Assistive Touch and turn it on.
This will enable a “home button” on your iPhone display. You will also be able to access Siri, device settings, and more.
