IPhone home button not working :/?

I've been having problems with my home button sometimes it won't work & sometimes it does but I have to press hard or several times. Does anyone know why this happens? & if I should take it to the apple store or Verizon where I purchased it to get it fixed? Or does anyone know how to fix it? I really don't want to buy another iPhone this is my second one I've had to buy. Help please thanks!(:

The same thing happened to me apple does not make there products sturdy I just dealt with it until I got a upgrade to get a new one.

Hopefully this helps

Go to setting -> general -> accessibility -> scroll down -> then assist touch or something like that and select on then you will get this little button on your screen which is like a home button but touch screen and you can mow it anywhere you would like on your screen!

Make your home button virtual.

Lot many users are facing same issue and I also had the said issue.

Open an app. Any default iOS app. (Weather, Clock etc.)
Hold the Sleep/Wake button (Power) till the ‘Slide to power off' appears
Now press and hold the home button till the slide goes away and you get to the homescreen.
(You'll notice that the app is closed)

From time to time, the iPhone home button becomes less responsive to clicks. However, there are some possible fixed mentioned in below resource link that you can try to fix your unresponsive iPhone home button.
