    I wonder where this sensor would sit. If in the top bezel then it may cause issues when holding the iPad in landscape depending on how you grasp your device e.g. thumbs either side....

    Knowing apple they'll test it intensively first.
    As an on switch fine, on/off more problematical, but the off button is second nature now.
