Like an app or some secret way of doing it? It was possible with the HP Touchpad via settings.
Let the battery run out.
SBSettings if you jailbreak.
Magnetic cover will do it.
That just puts it in sleep mode and the battery does drain faster than a straight shut down. But I may start doing that instead.
If you go into settings -> general -> accessibility then turn assistive touch on. You can then go onto that menu and into device and if you hold lock screen it should give you the slide to unlock. Its quite a bit of effort to turn off your phone but if you don't want to jailbreak it. Could set assistive touch to triple click the home button to make it a bit faster.
You get Five Stars for that
Thanks you solved my problem! No need to ever touch the Lock or Home buttons.
Just curious.. What do u have against touching the lock or home buttons...?
he doesn't want to wear out or show wear on the buttons...higher resale value
I've actually broken buttons before.
I've lost the center click wheel on both my iPod Classics. Also I like to find different ways of doing things so it's a little of both.
What do you DO to your Apple toys?
I have no idea what happened. It's either the device that failed twice or I broke the center click wheel. So that's why I want to avoid using the buttons on the iPad if I can. I also read that the iPad is susceptible to failed Home buttons. Not sure if that's a rumor or if it's true but I don't want to find out.
But like I said I do like to find different way of doing things.
I try and avoid touching that home button as much as possible too. I didn't really bother with this with my first iPad but with this one I'm treating it more carefully as I've heard about problems with people ruining their home button.
I use the gestures and accessibility. Hate using the buttons + it's easier.
I'm having problems with getting gestures to work, probably cause I don't understand how to set that up. But it sounds like a really cool idea.
Yeah. I don't bother with the assistive touch gestures. I use the multi-finger gestures to go home and such.
This method works for any I device firstly go to Settings>General>Accesibility>Assisted touch and turn it on after in any corner of your screen there will a circle press on it press device then to shut down your device hold lock screen then it will say slude to power off.
do you want a way of using the touch screen without touching it as well?
The buttons are there for a reason, if they break they break. If you're that worried about them breaking then get applecare.
Wouldn't that be covered by normal warranty?
Yet another who will do anything to protect his iPhone and it buttons.
Might I recommend not buying an iPad instead of indulging some ridiculous and irrational fear? Then you don't have to touch the damn thing at all.
To each his own, but my philosophy is to just use your device and not worry about such things. The buttons are meant to be pressed. It's what they are built and tested for. If they break or wear out from normal use then it's Apple's fault, not yours.
I remove the front door to my house by the hinges to gain entry so as to avoid wearing the door knob.
I have my car's idle set to 3000 RPM so I don't wear the accelerator pedal.
Amazon. Additional two year warranty for Applecare for iPad is about £20.
Don't know USA prices but probably similar.
Use that Home button as much as you can and if it wears out before you've had the iPad 3 years, you get free repair!
Can never get my head around people who spend so much on a device to do things then dont use it properly for fear of harming its sell on value or the off chance it might break.
