iPad and tablet enclosures with covered home buttons can be great for focusing your content on one specific app or webpage for customers to interact with. It can also prevent tampering, restricting access to sensitive areas of your device like the settings. But let's say that you do need to access the home button. No, you don't need to buy a new enclosure with an exposed home button cutout. You can simply turn on AssistiveTouch.

iPads and iPhones:

  1. Launch the Settings App
  2. Find and select Accessibility
  3. Find and select Touch
  4. Find and select AssistiveTouch (which should be set to Off by default)
  5. Set AssistiveTouch to On
  6. Use the small spherical icon that appears to access a new menu that includes home button functions. The icon can be moved around the screen by pressing and dragging.

Android Devices:

We weren't able to find any default settings that allowed for this functionality, but there are plenty of third-party apps available that can mimic this feature and allow access to your home screen via a digital button.
