How to Stop iPhone Screen From Rotating (iOS 7 and Up)

Screen rotation on iphone is a very nice feature to have, however if you find it rather annoying sometimes, here are a few steps to help you stop the screen rotation on iphone.

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen (or swipe down from the top right on iPhone X and later) to reveal the Control Center.
  2. The location of the screen rotation lock depends on what version of the iOS you’re running. In iOS 11 and up, it’s on the left, just under the first group of buttons. In iOS 7-10, it’s on the top right. For all versions, just look for the icon that shows a lock with a curved arrow around it.
  3. Tap the rotation lock icon to lock the screen to its current position. You’ll know screen rotation lock is enabled when the icon is highlighted in white (iOS 7-9) or red (iOS 10-11).
  4. When you’re done, click the Home button or swipe down Control Center (or swipe up, on iPhone X and later) to be returned to your previously used app or home screen.
