*Solution at the bottom*
Ever since the last update the home button does not take me back to the home screenat all. Also, unlocking my device is bugged as well which unfortunately happens to be the only way to get back to the home screen! This last update is 100% the cause since the issue only started immediately after the last update and did not exist for me until this last update. It's incredibly inconvenient and I literally can't do anything on my phone due to it since switching between app is now a 2 minute task.
