Stop iphone screen rotating: This post will show you how to stop iphone screen rotating when you turn your device on its side.
I just found the most important feature about the new iphone. It’s called ‘portrait orientation lock’. It stops the screen from flipping when you turn the phone on its side.
You know the situation. You are reading on the sofa, or sitting in bed, and the screen on your phone flips round because you are holding the device at an angle. You just triggered the motion sensors. The frustrating part is that when it happens, you have to move and shake your phone or ipad to get it to go back to normal. When it happens the first time its OK, but when it happens a lot it’s frustrating.
In ios7 the portrait orientation lock button has moved and is now on the control-center screen. This has stayed for iOS 8 and iOS9.
To access the control-center:
With portrait orientation lock enabled you will successfully stop iphone screen rotating :)
To stop your device from flipping about all over the place in iOS 6 and below; follow these simple instructions:
You can now use your iphone without the screen flipping!!!!!
You can lock the screen using this technique in either portrait or landscape mode.
To disable the lock, simply click the padlock icon again.
Your iphone will return to normal flipping mode :)
