The iPhone 7 has an all electronic button. There is no physical actuator anymore so both the "click" and TouchID functions are embedded in the electronics of the Home Button Flex. So while you can purchase a replacement button, it will not do anything but "fill the hole".
If the problem with the HB is the click function (TouchID still works), then that can be repaired via a micro-soldering repair. If the problem is lack of TouchID, then the only way to repair it is to bring the iPhone into an Apple store for a screen/button replacement.
You can finally buy aftermarket home buttons that have “click“ function and you don’t need to change the charging port or extra cables. Touch ID will of course not work (idk how did apple suddenly give up on such a secure technology they had going on).
So far 2 workarounds were designed by the Chinese:
Both solutions are not really “elegant” and not a full replacement as I would love to see one that you can just plug and play like the replacement for the old models(6,6s, etc.) and a model that uses the digital vibration instead of a physical click.
