    Hi. We bought the mother in law an iPad mini and she loves it. I've just been playing with it and the home button is definitely not working as efficiently as it does on my ipad mini.

    More often than not a double tap registers as single and loads spotlight. Quite often a single click doesn't register. If you always give it a good firm press though it always works.

    Tried a few tips like hold power then immediately press home until the off slider disappears and repeat until working. Doesn't seem to do anything.

    Anyone got any ideas or is it a trip to the Apple store?

    First things first: Check to see if the home button speed is set to slow. Settings>General>Accessibility>Home Button Speed

    In that case, I'd go to the store.

    Logged a call and spoke to Apple yesterday. Excellent service. Couldn't get an appointment in a store quick enough so sending a brand new one out and collecting the old one afterwards. It was a gift so doing that to the giftees address. Great service.

    Forgot to add that new one was delivered on the Monday, I'd rang on the Saturday and the courier picked the old one up on Thursday. One happy mother in law
