Here's How To Turn On/Off Magnetic Switch

For those people owning an iPad with magnetic switch (iPad 2 or new iPad) for the first time, here's how u can turn on/off the magnetic auto switch.

1. First make sure the iPad is ON.

2. Slide a small magnet along the right hand side. The iPad should auto off.

3. Go to Settings.

4. Under the "iPad Cover Lock/Unlock" option, u can select ON/OFF

If u are uncomfortable with the thought that your cover may accidentally turn your iPad on/off while it is in your bag, OR if u have a cover that does NOT support the auto-switch feature, u may want to turn the feature OFF

it will show in settings when you are using a smart cover or alike casing.

The setting will only appear when the ipad encounters a magnet/magnet cover for the first time.

The magnetic sensor on the iPad 3 is slightly different from the iPad 2.

So any 3rd party smart cover for iPad 2 will not wake/lock the iPad 3.

Only Apple's official one works.
