iOS 4.3 Brings Settings Toggle For Rotation/Mute Switch On iPad

by on January 13th, 2011

With the release of iOS 4.3, the iPad has now gained a new settings toggle allowing users to toggle between Mute or Lock Rotation for the side button on iPad.

Coming up to the iPad launch date, the side switch was originally going to be a mute switch but that changed before launch day. With the launch of the iPad, the side switch became an rotation lock for when users are rotating the iPad.

With the iOS 4 update, the side switch rotation lock was replaced with a mute function and the rotation lock was moved to the multitasking tray. Many iPad users did not like the change and asked Apple to add a toggle for the side switch.

Well, with iOS 4.3, the settings app on the iPad now has a new toggle to modify what the iPad side switch does. The new settings option gives users the following choices:

Use Side Switch to:

  • Lock Rotation
  • Mute

While the multitasking rotation selection remains, users now have the added option of toggling the side switch from the iPad settings app.
