Thanks Guys. This really works.
i have the ipad gen1. updated it to IOS 5.1.1 and then lost the sound.
Play with your side toggle switch and see what icon comes on your screen. if you see the 'circular arrow', it means the switch is un/locking your screen to turn around. If it shows the bell, it would display it as bell with diagonal line on it - meaning the sound is off. Simple - just push the switch the other side and the sound will be on. But if you see the circular arrow, do the following:
go to Settings>General> Use Side Switch to:
If the tick mark is on Mute, then first toggle ipad's side switch. A bell will come up on your screen when the switch will turn the sound on. The moment that happens, go to the Use Side Switch selection and check on Lock Rotation.
now the toggle switch will be used for its inital purpose - locking and unlocking the screen rotation and not to mute or unmute your ipad.
All the best.
Hi I recently updated to IOS 6.1.2 and I have lost audio for all my apps the use audio and well as the ability to play music, every time I press play it the icon quickly changes from play to pause/ stop I am hoping the this is a software bug.
