Owning Apple device is prestigious & costly so it create device owner think more about safety of his device from miss handling.

 
So being yourself iPhone, iPad and iPod touch device owner you must have bought cover or case for your device.

 
All iOS device has one functionality that closing flap cover sleeps or shut down iOS device whether be it iPad or iPhone or iPod touch.

 

Here is how to activate this functionality & make it work if it is not working on your particular device.

 
Go to ‘Settings’ > General > Lock / Unlock (Now activate Lock /Unlock slider by sliding it to right)

 
Voila…

 
You are done,

 
Now closing your particular iPad flap cover should sleep or shut down device & opening flap cover iPad will wake up to login prompt if any.

 
Hope it helps,

 
Thanks & Regards

  1. My lock/unlock switch was already on. I turned it off and then on again. No difference. This has been working since I got it last year, but today it didn’t work. What else could I try?

  2. I would like to hear a click noise when I turn the flap on my iPod
    It seems it only stays a second and then stops
    Is there something I ‘m not doing ?
    Thanks

      1. Mine was working until today, then it suddenly stopped detecting when the cover is closed. I have tried moving the lock/unlock switch, restarting, with no effect.

  3. Nice man! I was convinced my iPad or the cover was broken because I didn’t realize it was a simple setting. Seems like someone accidentally turned it off.

  4. Am being driven mad.
    In settings General there is no lock unlock switch my pad is air2 and I have the new IOS 10 installed,could this be the problem.

    1. Further to my last,found the way.
