Normally, after pressing the Home button, it will take nearly a full second to completely close the apps you are using. In case you want to get rid of this delay,you have come to the right place.
In reality, there is a free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Mehul Rao from Cydia called Accelerated Home button. This app can eliminate the delay time after pressing the Home button, allowing you to access the Home screen immediately.
The question is why the delay exists? The main reason is that Apple wants your iOS device to have time to think for a moment and see what your next action is. When you press Home button once, you will go to Home screen but two or three times, you will meet something different.
Your device will wait for few seconds after you press the Home button once for additional presses in order to either immediately launch the App Switcher or offer you Guided Access/Zoom options. Apart from eliminating the delay that you normally come across when pressing the Home button, there isn’t nothing new here to explore. Therefore, it is necessary for you to try it before giving a judgement.
In case you don’t like it and want to go back to the original timing as the previous settings, the only way is to uninstall the tweak from Cydia.
Accelerated Home Button is now available to download for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository (The tweak is designed for iPhone and iPad only).
Accelerated Home Button is a great tweak that allows you to eliminate the delay effect every time you press the Home button on your iPhone. If you have a jail-broken iPhone, give the tweak a try
