A few weeks ago I showed you how to close open programs in iOS4 on the iPad and iPhone (and I was so glad I wasn’t the only one who didn’t know how to do that for a long time!). But that’s not the only thing you can do by double clicking the home button.
Double click on your home button, slide the icons to the right, and — voila! — you’ll find a hidden menu!
With this menu, you can:
- Lock the screen orientation
- Adjust the screen brightness
- Adjust the volume
- Control your music playback
I change my screen brightness a lot since I use my iPad at night when it’s dark and during the day, and for the longest time I was actually going into my settings to adjust it. This is so much faster! Being able to lock the screen orientation when I read is really helpful as well.
