The home button is likely to be easiest breakdown component of all the iOS devices. So after warranty period we should avoid frequent use of the home button so as to prevent malfunction. Now we list some cases that require home function in iPhone or iPad and see if there are any other alternatives.
Quit all the running apps and return to the main interface, go to "Settings" - "General" and turn "Multitasking Gesture" on. Now you don't need to pinch home button to get back to desktop, you can make it by slightly grabbing the screen with four or five fingers.
