Such strange issues get resolved normally by resetting the iPhone (Press the Sleep/Wake button and the Home Button both simultaneously after which the phone restarts slowly with apple logo).

What is the meaning of the various symbols on the line with blutooth and charge percent etc. In particular, the symbol with a lock with a circle around it?


The lock with a circle around it means you have locked the screen rotation. This means when you rotate the device, the screen will not rotate.

If you want to turn off the screen lock, just swipe up on your iPhone screen and turn it off in the panel that appears.

More information is available on the Apple website: https://support.apple.com/en-us/ts3805

Hope that helps!

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.

How can a get the screen on hp slate2 turn sideways


The power switch of the Slate 2 is a 2-way switch.
The user can slide the switch towards the lock symbol to lock display from auto rotating. So move the switch away from the lock symbol.

The Lock symbol needs to moved to the right to the unlock symbol by your finger.

Purchased an hp tablet last friday and did as the instructions said. I began using it saturday and noticed the image remains the same when I rotate from verical to landscape. read the instructions again...


To enable screen rotation, access the notification curtain by swiping down from the top of the screen. Touch the rotation icon, which looks like a lock circled by arrows. This should unlock
and allow the screen to remain static while the tablet is rotated
