How to Stop iPhone Screen From Rotating

If you’ve ever found yourself frustrated with your iPhone screen constantly rotating when you don’t want it to, don’t worry – you’re not alone. The auto-rotate feature can be useful in many situations, but there are times when it becomes more of a nuisance. Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can take to stop your iPhone screen from rotating.

Step 1: Access the Control Center

The first step is to access the Control Center on your iPhone. To do this, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen (or swipe up from the bottom if you’re using an older model) to reveal the Control Center.

Step 2: Disable Auto-Rotate

Once you have accessed the Control Center, look for the icon that looks like a lock surrounded by a circular arrow. This is the orientation lock button. Tap on it once to disable auto-rotate.

Note: If the icon is highlighted in white, it means that auto-rotate is already disabled.

Step 3: Check Settings

If you find that your screen still rotates even after disabling auto-rotate in the Control Center, there may be another setting that needs to be adjusted. Follow these additional steps:

  1. Navigate to Settings

    Tap on the “Settings” app icon on your home screen.

  2. Select Display & Brightness

    In the settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Display & Brightness”.

  3. Disable Auto-Rotate

    In the “Display & Brightness” menu, look for the “Auto-Rotate” option. Tap on the toggle switch next to it to disable auto-rotate.

Step 4: Restart Your iPhone

If you have followed the previous steps and your iPhone screen still rotates, try restarting your device. Sometimes a simple restart can fix minor software glitches that may be causing the issue.

Step 5: Update Your iOS

If none of the above steps work, it’s possible that there is a bug or compatibility issue with your current iOS version. Make sure you have the latest version of iOS installed on your iPhone by following these steps:

  1. Navigate to Settings

    Tap on the “Settings” app icon on your home screen.

  2. Select General

    In the settings menu, scroll down and tap on “General”.

  3. Check for Software Updates

    In the “General” menu, tap on “Software Update”. If an update is available, follow the prompts to install it.

Note: Updating your iOS may require a Wi-Fi connection and some time for downloading and installing the update.

By following these steps, you should be able to stop your iPhone screen from rotating when you don’t want it to. Remember that enabling or disabling auto-rotate can be useful in different scenarios, so feel free to adjust the settings based on your preferences and needs.
