iOS 4.2 Changes iPad Orientation Switch to a Mute Switch
iOS 4.2 Changes iPad Orientation. Switch to a Mute Switch Apple [AAPL] looks set to be changing one of the functions of the iPad in the next iOS update. When iOS 4.2 is released, the current orientation lock switch found on the top right of the device will suddenly be changed to a mute switch for switching sound off.
This is causing a bit of upset as many do not need the option to mute their sound with the flick of a switch, but they do enjoy the ability to lock the screen orientation at the flick of a switch. To lock the screen orientation after the update you’ll need to tap the home button twice, scroll to the left and hit an onscreen button.
What are your thoughts? Do you need a physical mute button, or would you prefer to stick to using a physical screen orientation lock button?
The image below shows what the physical buttons will be changing to. Only the mute/screen lock button will change.
