The modern versions of iPhones especially the ones with the all-screen design have ditched the iconic TOUCH ID button. Instead of the Home button, Apple has added a Home Bar that works like a charm in letting you quickly go to the Home Screen.

If you are one of them, let me show you how to put the Home Button on-screen on iPhone 15 and 14.
