Two Apple experts explain what to do when your iPad won’t rotate. Most of the time, your iPad isn’t rotating because Device Orientation Lock is turned on. You can simply open Control Center and turn it off.

If your iPad stops rotating when you open a specific app, there could be a problem with that app. If it has crashed, open Control Center and close it. If it continues to crash, it’s probably time to find a replacement!

I’ve found a less extreme way to unlock the orientation than resetting all the settings—when mine locks for no apparent reason, I do a “cold restart.” That is, I simultaneously hold down both the power button (upper right, top) and the home button until the screen goes black and the white Apple logo appears. If Siri should come up because you are holding down the home button, ignore it and keep holding both buttons down. So far, it’s always worked.

Very cool, you guys just made this 60 year old man a very happy man! My iPad was working fine when I went to bed and the this morning the screen wouldn’t rotate. I remember seeing that button but didn’t know what it did, and apparently I must have tapped it last night when I was adjusting the screen brightness! You guys are too cool!
