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.
Screen Rotation Lock Now Does Not Work After 4.2.1
Dec 8, 2010
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.
