Before iPad was released, Apple had announced that the hardware switch on the side of the iPad would be a mute switch, just like on the iPhone. But in March the company changed its plans.

In new iOS 4.2, expected to be released in November, the orientation-lock button will be transformed again into a mute-switch.

The Complete Transcript of Steve Jobs' Apple Q4 Earnings Call



Here's the Apple CEO in his own words talking during Apple Q4 Earnings Call:

Hi, everybody. As most of you know, I don’t usually participate in Apple earnings calls, since you’re all in such capable hands with Peter and Tim. But I just couldn’t help dropping by for our first 20-billion-dollar quarter. I’d like to chat about a few things, and then stay for the rest of the Q&A, if that’s all right.

First, let me discuss iPhone. We sold 14.1 million iPhones in the quarter, which represents a 91 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter, and was well ahead of IDC’s latest published estimate of 64 percent growth for the global smartphone market in the September quarter. And it handily beats RIM’s 12.1 million BlackBerrys sold, in their most recent quarter ending in August.
