AssistiveTouch: fix a broken home button | iOS 11 Guide [iPad]

If the Home button is damaged and no longer working, turn on this option to enable a virtual one. From the Accessibility menu in Settings then General turn on the AssistiveTouch option. A white dot will now appear on screen. Tap this to access popular options, such as the Home button.

The dot fades after a few seconds so that you can see through it but tapping on it will wake it up and reveal the options again.
