This has upset many iPad users who're looking forward to update their iPads. There was however a ray of hope for some people who expected Apple to give them an option to choose what the hardware button on the side would do for them on their iPad – at least when the final version of iOS 4.2 for the iPad arrives sometime in November.
However, that hope seems to have been shattered when none other than Apple CEO Steve Jobs in reply to an e-mail from a customer confirmed that at least for now, you would not be able to choose what you want that button to do for you.
In iOS 4.2 for iPad is the switch on the side going to be the mute and not screen orientation lock from now on?
Are you planning to make that a changeable option?
So, there you have it! The man himself giving aconfirmationof sorts.
Those of you who are worried about this change, let us remind you that you can change the orientation lock by double-tapping the home button and then swiping to the right. Not much of a learning curve there but it would have been pretty cool if the button was user configurable.
Are you happy that Apple has bought back the mute switch or you prefer it as the screen rotation lock switch? Tell us in the comments.
