Rainforest's iOS VMs simulators for testing iOS mobile web and native application test are built to mirror the screen resolution and iOS version of the device they're meant to simulate. While this testing interface does not directly allow for testers to access an iOS device's home button, the Home button can still be accessed by following the steps outlined below.

Access the Home Button:

To access the Home button on an iOS VM, a user interfacing with the VM will need to click "Hardware" in the iOS VM's top navigation bar. From the drop-down menu, a user would then click "Home", which will bring the user back to the Home Screen of the iOS simulator from either the mobile Safari browser or iOS native application in which they're executing the test.

Sample Instructions for a Step:

Step One: Locate the top navigation bar outside the device simulator and click "Hardware". In the drop-down menu, click on "Home"
Question: Were you taken to the home screen of the device that shows a number of applications?
