No sound from newly-installed Angry Birds on iPad

I decided to find out what all the Angry Birds fuss was about, and installed it on my first-gen iPad today.

It sure isn’t very exciting without any sound! So after a bit of Googling and reading some tips like this, I discovered that since I had changed the side-switch from Mute to Lock Rotation, and I had locked the rotation when the game was installed, the game defaulted to thinking that the iPad was muted.

Solution:

  • Close Angry Birds
  • Go into Settings, set Side Switch to Mute
  • Mute, then un-Mute the iPad
  • Set back to Lock Rotation
  • Re-launch Angry Birds, hear sound
  • Enjoy the sounds of squawking birds and desperate pigs.
