    So with the new os, the lock button turned in to a mute switch supposedly. When iam playing pandora and hit the mute nothing happens?

    Which means what?

    @OP - I've been wondering the same thing. What good is a mute switch that doesn't mute?

    Well, the mute switch now works just like the iPhone - which is dumb IMO because the iPhone "rings" and the iPad can't.

    Really all you do is turn off notifications, but games and music will still continue to play under "mute".

    If you still haven't found it, the rotation lock "switch" is displayed when you double-tap the home button and scroll all the way to the left in the task bar.

    You'll find more info in our video FAQ.

    Turns off keyboard typing sounds as well.

    Thanks for expanding, Numb.

    I guess it's no big deal. I didn't lock rotation all that often before. It does seem pretty useless for the iPad though.

    I've found the "mute switch" completely useless :(

    Yeah, same here - I never used mute, but I did use the lock a lot. I'm disappointed that it's gone.

    Not important.

    I don't care about the mute button, I'm deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other.
