Urgent help, Fosstodontians! I was teaching my 8th year old niece to replace a broken iPhone 7 screen. Unfortunately, the home button cable was damaged and now the Touch ID is not working anymore. I went to the Apple Store and they charge 100GBP for this; is there any online shop OR good heart person that can help to repair the home button flexo cable? A new button will not suffice as it also looses the Touch ID. Thanks!
