Locking portrait view
Stay right where you are...

Many apps have a single orientation, portrait or landscape, but many allow you to view the content in either orientation, such as the default Safari internet browser.

If you’re looking to lock the screen orientation on your device to portrait, then look no further. Here’s what you do:

  • Doubleclick the Home button and a footer menu will appear at the bottom
  • Swipe the footer menu left until you see the grey square with the circular arrow (see image)
  • Tap on it and you’ll see the text ‘Portrait Orientation Locked’
  • Repeat and tap on the same button to unlock
Job done.
