Setting Side Switch Functionality
The switch on the side of your iPad can be used for one of two things: muting the sound or locking the screen orientation. Whichever one you choose for the switch, the other will then appear in the Control Center as a button. See “Using Control Center” in Chapter 1. So either way, you have fairly quick access to both functions.
Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.
- Tap General.
- Tap Lock Rotation if you want your side switch to be an orientation lock switch.
Tap Mute if you want the side switch to mute the volume on the speakers and earphones.
