Depending on the settings, the side switch will either turn off the sound on the iPad, or fix the position of the screen. The second function will be located in the Control Center. Further steps imply that you want to use the side switch to lock, and the Control Center to turn off the sound, which is not necessary if everything suits you anyway.
- 1 Open the settings. You can assign the side switch on the iPad to mute or lock the screen. After selecting one of the options, the second will be available in the Control Center.
- For example, if the side switch is responsible for fixing the screen, then instead of the lock button in the Control Center, you will see a mute button. If the side switch is responsible for turning off the sound, a screen lock button will appear in the Control Center.
- 2 Click on the “General” option. Here you can configure the side switch.
- 3 Find the “Use side switch for” section. Set it to Screen Lock.
