iOS 4.2 Release: Not all changes good for iPad

If you head over to’s iPad pages you will see that iOS 4.2 is coming to iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad in November 2010, obviously this will bring more features to the end-user, however not all of the changes are going to be popular with all iPad users.

According to Apple, iOS 4.2 will add over 100 new features and innovations for iPad users to take advantage of, including mutitasking, folders, AirPlay and AirPrint, however if you are a fan of the screen location lock button we have some bad news for you.

A recent article posted on 9To5Mac suggests that the screen location lock button will become a mute button, if you check out their article and scroll down to the comments section you will see that this news is very unpopular, one reader suggests that he will jailbreak his iPad to change this, another says that holding the down key for 2 seconds mute’s his iPad, however excluding the button that will be changed there is no quick and easy way to lock screen rotation.

We would love to see what you thought of this news, therefore feel free to have a rant in the comments section, we have embedded an image showing the proposed change below.
