Your favourite iPad 3 accompanies you everywhere in your daily lives. One of the many conveniences it provides is a dedicated switch, which according to your iOS version, installed updates, and settings, it can offer a unique function.
Most of the times, this is used to set the silent mode of your device, hence it is more commonly known as mute or silent switch. Thanks to it, you can switch between silent and normal operation in one simple slide.
Still, the mute switch can often have the function of the orientation lock switch. This means that its press will lock the screen in landscape or portrait view, so it remains unaffected by the way you hold it, which is extremely useful in many cases, eg when watching widescreen videos.
If your side switch is broken or malfunctioning, you will lose a very important part of its functionality.
The most common symptoms of a damaged iPad 3 side switch, are the following:
- Intense wear and tear
