iphone screen won’t rotate, how to rotate screen on ipad
For all Apple iOS-based mobile devices, the screen may rotate automatically when the device is tilted. If this no longer works, it is often the faulty activation of the alignment lock. How to turn them off again and what to do if the screen still does not turn, we explain below.
- Open the control center of your iPhone. For the iPhone X, you have to swipe from top right to bottom left . For all other iPhones, swipe up from the bottom of the screen .
- Now check whether the lock symbol is displayed in red with a round arrow . If it is red, tap it to stop it from turning red. This disables the orientation lock.
If the symbol is red, the alignment lock is active. // For a white icon, the alignment lock is disabled.
What else can you do?
Some apps do not allow automatic screen rotation on their own. Use another app to see if the rotation is working again. For example, the notes app is also suitable for this.
If this does not work, sometimes a reboot of the iPhone can solve the problem. If that does not help, you should contact Apple Support .
