    Hi Dc24. It shouldn't take 10 seconds for you to hear the locking sound but with my iPad there is a little bit of a delay - maybe 2 second at the very most - before I hear the lock sound. I know we have talked about some other things in your other posts, but I can't remember if I suggested this. Try rebooting your iPad and see of the lock sound comes a little quicker.


    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.

    Have you tried closing all of the apps in the recents tray? If not, try that now.


    Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Double tap the home button and the recents tray will appear with all of your recent apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the app that you want to close. Tap the home button or anywhere above the task bar.



    I know that you had the problem with keyboard clicks after using Siri and I don't know if you ever solved that one. I know that I suggested resetting all settings and you said that you tried that and it didn't work. So the only things that I have left to suggest are to either restore your iPad iOS software - or take your iPad Mini to an Apple Store and let an Apple Genius take a look at it.

    Hey demo I tried what you said about closing the apps I tried that and that wasn't helpful either anymore tips oh and is there anymore ways you can give before I take my iPad mini to the apple store and about the keyboard clicks  not working you still got anymore tips before I take it to the apple store

    The only other thing that I can think of why the keyboard clicks stopped is that perhaps system sounds got muted somehow. I post this explanation from time to time here and it has helped some others.



    System sounds can be muted and controlled two different ways. The screen lock rotation can be controlled in the same manner as well.


    Settings>General>Use Side Switch to: Mute System sounds. If this option is selected, the switch on the side of the iPad above the volume rocker will mute system sounds.

    If you choose Lock Screen Rotation, then the switch locks the screen. If the screen is locked, you will see a lock icon in the upper right corner next to the battery indicator gauge.


    If you have the side switch set to lock screen rotation then the system sound control is in the task bar. Double tap the home button and in the task bar at the bottom, swipe all the way to the right. The speaker icon is all the way to the left. Tap on it and system sounds will return.


    If you have the side switch set to mute system sounds, then the screen lock rotation can be accessed via the task bar in the same manner as described above.


    This support article from Apple explains how the side switch works.



    But let me say again, that if you are having issues that are sound related and you have checked all of your settings, you probably should take your iPad to an Apple Store, there could be something very simple that we are missing and if its something hardware related, your iPad is still under warranty.

    Hi demo from Pittsburg pa my problem is solved my keyboard clicks work now after I use Siri I'm glad it's fixed oh and thanks for the suggestions you gave me to fix it was a lot of trouble but now I fixed it

  • Demo Level 10 (87,945 points)

    I am extremely happy to hear that you have finally got your keyboard clicks working again.

  • Dc24 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeah well one more  question about my keyboard clicks after Siri well it works after I use Siri it's just not that loud when sound effects are up any way to fix it

  • Demo Level 10 (87,945 points)

    I'm not sure why that happens, but you know that you can turn up sounds in Settings>Sounds>Change with Buttons>Off. If you set that to off and turn the sound up, that should leave the sound where it is set at because now your volume button on the iPad will not control the keyboard click volume.


    I have this weird glitch where if I go into my videos app and play a movie for just a few seconds, and then back out of the app, my keyboard clicks get real loud. So if I play a video for a few seconds, my keyboard clicks will get older. It happens every time for me.

    Hey demo from Pittsburg pa  i tried what you said and that glitch is happening to me to any way to fix it and the keyboard clicks are silent again when I turned off change with buttons when the voulume is up on the multi tasking bar

  • Demo Level 10 (87,945 points)

    If you turn off change with buttons, then the slider in that setting controls the volume of the keyboard clicks. The volume will now be controlled in the Sounds setting and not by the volume switch on the side of the iPad.
