Dynamically change your Volume Buttons based on the iPad’s Orientation.

Did you know you could dynamically set what the iPad’s volume buttons do based on the orientation of the iPad? As n example, if you have your iPad sitting vertically and the volume buttons are on the top right, they behave normally. the top button will turn the volume up. But when you rotate it 180 degrees, they are backwards. The button on top now turns the volume down, while the button on the bottom turns it up. You can now have these buttons change dynamically based on the iPad’s orientation so it behaves correctly. This was introduced in iPadOS 15.4. See how to dynamically set the volume buttons based on the iPad’s orientation in this video for the iPad.
