If you have an iPad 2 or iPad 3 you may be wondering just where the heck the mute button is. On the iPad, original flavor, it used to be that little slider button next to the volume up and down rocker button. But now that button has been changed to the “lock/don’t lock” screen orientation button (while on the iPhone that button is the mute button and you’ll be looking for how to lock your screen orientation). But fear not, there is a mute button, it’s just, well, hidden. Here is how to mute your iPad 2 or iPad 3:
Click your home screen button twice:
..which will pull up the “most recent apps used” bar at the bottom of your iPad, just above the home button.
Now, swipe that “most recent apps used” bar to the right, and it will give you the music control bar which, if you look closely, has a mute/unmute button at the far right!
