I was playing around with the settings and clicked rotation lock. Now I can't undo it. I clicked "mute" and the rotation lock was unchecked but there's still the little icon in the top corner and it won't rotate.
how to write an application which prevents UIView changes when iPad rotates ? What I mean is: suppose your iPad is configured to allow views to be adapted to iPad orientation. Well, my application should ignore this setting, and should force orientation locking.
If only the Mute button would mute the whole device, it would be somewhat usefull.But, as it is, it is just a stupid button.make it at least an option. hardware Rotation Lock was awesome and trully usefull.
After loading the new up dated software 4.2.1 the screen rotation lock now does not work and displays sound off. The button below still works (sound) function. Does any one have a fix or is this a new bug that 4.2.1 has introduced...
I dropped my iPad yesterday (with it in the Apple Case) and it hit right on the screen rotation lock switch. There is a tiny little dent that doesn't look too bad, but it bad enough that the screen rotation lock switch no longer slides (I suppose it is wedged). Will Apple do anything for me? I imagine I'll have to pay to get it fixed but I am not sure.
I find myself constantly doing a (unlock)(turn)(lock) sequence as I switch between apps.Sometimes the accelerometer is just a bit too sensitive That is about the only "complaint" I have after a month so of pretty heavy use, including a nearly two week trip to Germany where I managed to most of what I needed to do with the iPad + Bluetooth Keyboard + Cradlepoint PHS-300/Huawei 160e (no MicroSIMs where available yet so I had to improvise).On a side note, I did learn to take the keyboard out of my carry on when going thru airport security, otherwise there is a fuss about why didn't you take your laptop out (they see the keyboard in the X-Ray screen).
I have accidentally enabled Rotation lock while playing with settings on my iPad 2. I tried to disable it by clicking on the ‘mute’ option. The icon still remains on the top corner even though it does not rotate. Can I remove that icon?
Now that iOS 4.3 has been out a good long time, and Apple has restored our precious rotation lock, who finds themselves using it? Or do you still use the switch as a silencer?Personally, mine is set to rotation lock and I use it frequently.
Maybe I am just daft but, I love that I can now choose my switch on iOS 4.3 as my rotation lock (again!!) yet once I activate my rotation lock in setting I loose all sound on my iPad. Its like revenge of the mute button!
There were times I was really hoping for iOS 4.2 to come to my iPad. Within an hour I wish my lock rotation switch from 3.2.2 was back. Instead of leaving the very useful switch as is, Apple decided to give it a very useless task; partly muting iPad sounds.So far I have hardly ever muted my iPad and in the instances I did, the keep the "volume button pressed for a few sec's and volume will drop to zero" worked perfectly. What I do use very often is lock rotation.
Always had my IPad 2 locked on landscape. Weirdly and suddenly today I notice the screen flipping around and when I went to reset it found the icon gone, and in it's place a "lightness" control. How did this happen ? Where is the rotation icon gone? Can I rectify this myself (no boffin)
I have an iPad2 which I purchased in Dec, 2011. Up until recently my default settings were allowing for the screen to rotate AND the sound of the click to be heard when I was typing. Something changed suddenly and the sound of the click when using the keyboard went away. I started looking into it and I uncovered the Side Swicth feature. But it looks like this feature only allows you to have one or the other but NOT both. In other words, it only allows to have the Mute on and the Lock Rotation off or the other way around! But not BOTH on or off at the same time! Bizarre! I am sure this must be a bug or there must be a way around it that I cannot figure out. And how did it change? New "upgrade"?
