Are you tired of constantly rotating your iPhone screen manually? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of enabling auto rotation on your iPhone. So, sit back, relax, and let’s get started!

Step 1: Access the Control Center

To begin, swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen to open the Control Center. The Control Center is a convenient hub that allows quick access to various settings and features.

Step 2: Locate the Screen Rotation Lock

Once you have opened the Control Center, look for a circular icon with a padlock inside it. This icon represents the screen rotation lock feature. If it is highlighted in white or has a red line across it, it means that auto rotation is disabled.


On some older iPhone models, you may need to swipe left in the control center to find the screen rotation lock button.

Step 3: Enable Auto Rotation

To enable auto rotation on your iPhone, simply tap on the screen rotation lock icon. Once tapped, the icon should no longer be highlighted or show a red line across it.

Congratulations! You have successfully enabled auto rotation on your iPhone.
