First try turning rotate off and turning the phone off and restarting, then turning rotate on again. If that doesn't make it rotate, reboot your phone (Hold power and function buttons simultaneously until it shuts down) and restart it. If that still doesn't fix the rotate function, you might have to backup and restore your phone.

Apple has detailed instructions on their web site for doing a restore for your version of iOS. Just go to and click on iPhone Essentials.

My FaceTime screen is at 90 degrees

  1. Verify that screen rotation lock is off. If you see this symbol in the status bar, rotation lock is on: lock_rotate.png Follow the steps below to turn off screen rotation lock.
    • Swipe up along the bottom of the screen to display Control Center (you can do this from any screen, including the Lock screen).
    • Tap the Screen Rotation Lock button.
    • If the button was highlighted, the button will appear dimmed after tapping it.
  2. Not all iOS apps are designed to rotate. Some may use only portrait or landscape mode, or switch depending on the content. To test screen rotation, open the Calculator app that comes with your device. If the screen does not rotate as expected while using the calculator app, continue troubleshooting.
  3. If the issue persists, restart your iOS device.
  4. If the screen remains locked, back up and restore your device.

Upside down screen on ipad

The Auto-rotation setting must be disabled. Enable it on the settings menu. Or if your tablet is running iOS 7, then enable auto-rotation on the Control Center. Simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen to launch control center. (It is like the opposite of pulling out Status Bar or Notifications Bar above.)

Screen wont rotate

  1. In iOS 7 or higher, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to reveal Control Center. In iOS 6 or lower, double tap the home button on the front of the iPhone or iPod touch. This will reveal the fast app switcher row of apps at the bottom of the screen
  2. In iOS 7, tap the screen rotation lock icon. If it is white, it's on; black and it's off.
  3. In iOS 6 or earlier, swipe left to right to reveal the Music app, music player controls, and on the far left, an app with a curved arrow in it (if the lock is turned on, you'll see the lock inside the arrow)
  4. To turn screen rotation lock on, tap the curved arrow icon so that the lock appears
  5. To turn screen rotation lock off, tap the icon so that the lock disappears
  6. When you're done in either version of the iOS, single tap the home button and you'll be returned to normal operation of your device.

My screen display is rotated 90-degrees, so it now is "portrait" rather than the traditional landscape.

This is actually a feature you can use for monitors that rotate. The cure is easy to do - open control panel, then click on display (or right click on desktop, select properties) then click on settings. Then click on advanced. One of the tabs should be something like catalyst control center. Click it, then start it. It takes a minute for it to open. One of the settings on the left side controls the rotation.
