iPad screen orientation lock

Looks like Apple has been hard at work making some final tweaks to the design and functionalist of the . As you can see in the image above, previously there was a mute switch above the volume rocker, similar to what you’d find on an iPhone or iPod touch, but now that switch has been reassigned to provide a different function. It’s not a quick way to enable and disable the automatic screen rotation when turning the device from landscape to portrait. Our thoughts on this one? Good move.

Don’t forget, you can now pre-order your iPad.
