Even though you may not realize it, your iPad is muted. Yes, even though you can play music in the iTunes music app, your iPad is STILL muted. The reason is that Apple made the music app and all other apple native apps IMMUNE to muting, which is very confusing because no one realizes that the iPad is actually muted. (Trust us, we’ve trouble shot this issue several hundreds of times and in every single case, the iPad was on mute without the user knowing!) One surefire way to tell is that if you type on a muted iPad, it will make no “clicking” sound.

Thankfully this is a VERY simple fix: For all iPads OTHER than the iPad Air 2 and Pro, there is a physical side switch that when flipped will usually unmute the iPad. If it still does not unmute or if you have an iPad Air 2, the mute button is found by swiping up swiftly from the bottom of your iPad to open the iPad control Panel. There you will find a bell icon which controls muting.
