Are you tired of having sideways or upside-down photos on your iPhone? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to easily rotate photos on your iPhone using the built-in editing tools. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Photos App

The first thing you need to do is open the Photos app on your iPhone. You can find it on your home screen, usually represented by a multicolored flower icon. Tap on it to launch the app.

Step 2: Select the Photo

Once you’re inside the Photos app, navigate to the album where the photo you want to rotate is located. Tap on the album name and then browse through the photos until you find the one that needs rotating. Tap on it to open it in full-screen view.

Step 3: Access Edit Mode

With the photo opened in full-screen view, tap on the “Edit” button located at the top-right corner of your screen. This will bring up a toolbar with various editing options.

Step 4: Rotate Your Photo

Now that you’re in edit mode, look for an icon that looks like a square with a curved arrow inside it. This is the rotate tool.

Tap on it once to rotate your photo 90 degrees counterclockwise. If your photo needs further rotation, simply tap on it again until it’s oriented correctly.

Step 5: Save Your Changes

After rotating your photo, make sure to save your changes by tapping on the “Done” button at the bottom-right corner of your screen. This will apply the rotation and return you to full-screen view.

Step 6: Enjoy Your Rotated Photo

That’s it! You’ve successfully rotated your photo on iPhone.

Now you can enjoy your newly oriented image without any hassle. Feel free to share it with your friends and family, or use it as a wallpaper on your device.


  • If you accidentally rotated your photo too much, don’t worry. Simply tap the rotate tool in the opposite direction to fix it.
  • The editing tools in the Photos app also allow you to crop, apply filters, adjust brightness, and more. Explore these features to enhance your photos even further.
