Virtual Home Tweak Lets iPhone 5s Users Touch Home Button Instead of Pressing

Virtual Home is a new Cydia tweak that lets you use your Touch ID Sensor as a home button. That means you can simply just tap/touch the home button instead of pressing it to go home. You can also simply tap and hold the home button for the multitasking menu. The tweak obviously requires an iPhone 5s for this since it relies on Touch ID.

Use Touch ID sensor as Home Button and give your home button a break.

Single Tap for Home Button. Tap and Hold for Multitask

This also enables devices to detect unlocking without the need to press home or sleep button first.


In theory, you can even extend the life of your home button, since they often to go bad after a couple of years due to excessive clicking. Another interesting part of the Virtual Home tweak is that it allows you to unlock your phone using Touch ID without pressing the home button or sleep button first.

You can grab the Virtual Home Tweak from Cydia in the BigBoss Repo for free.

This is one perfect app, I was little annoyed when I took iPhone 6 after HTC One but apps like this made my day. Bravo for the developers !

Actually activator can allow this similar function. You can designate the touch id sensor to be registered as a home button click. One touch for home. Two touch for task bar. No need for an additional tweak
