Apple iPad update of OS to 4.2

Nov 23

Is fabulous and long overdue (since its been on the iPhone since this summer).

But I couldn’t agree more with this Gizmodo posting that I want the auto-rotate button back.

Apple changed the function of the button, which previously kept the iPad from turning the screen automatically, to being a mute button (like the iPhone).

Unfortunately, to access the same feature requires a double click of the home button, a left swipe and then selecting an icon.

Since I use the button to read while laying down, its an unnecessary and unwelcome change.
