    Don't worry. Lots of folks have the same issue. You just need to set up the mute correctly, and realise that mute does not necessarily mean what you think it might mean on the iPad ;)

    Have you unlocked the side switch?
    And double tapped the home button and enabled audio?

    Yes I did and it's working perfectly... The side switch was locked so I just pushed it on.
