Simple Tweak Removes the iPhone Home Button Delay
Feeling let down by the Home button delay on your iPhone? Here's how you can remove it completely using a simple yet effective jailbreak tweak.
Download 'Accelerated Home Button' and Remove the iPhone Home Button Delay
With the release of iOS 10.3, Apple started focusing on making iOS as zippy as possible. But left many corners untouched that are executed using hardware, such as the Home button on the iPhone. On the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple really pushed things into high gear, allowing users to close apps halfway through when they're open using the Home button. However, same can't be said for older iPhone models.
In order to fix this little annoyance (if you see it as one) one developer went ahead and developed a tweak called Accelerated Home Button. Once downloaded and installed, things will be far more responsive and you should see no iPhone Home button delay whatsoever. This is a huge deal for users who find a little bit of lag as a complete eyesore.
Removes the delay after pressing your home button!
No options to configure.
The tweak is available to download straight from Cydia under the BigBoss repo. In case you are wondering: yes, you are required to have a jailbroken iPhone at hand in order to make use of it. If you don't, then you are completely out of luck as Apple will never ever sanction such a tweak or app on the App Store that offers the same functionality.
There are absolutely no settings to configure and everything works right from the moment you install this tweak from Cydia. Last but not the least, the Accelerated Home Button jailbreak tweak is absolutely free to download, making it a very slick little piece of software to run in the background. So even if you don't end up liking it, you can just uninstall it there and then, without worrying that you tossed your dollar on something that barely did something for you.
Give this tweak a shot, if you happen to be jailbroken, and let us know what you think about it in the comments section below.
