I bought an ipad 2 the day it came out, and it worked flawlessly until I updated to 4.3.2. Now if I want to change the screen orientation, I have to turn the screen off, put the ipad in the desired position, then unlock it again. I have the switch set to control orientation, but it is in the unlocked position. Any ideas of should I just restore it?...|ipad-2-change-orientation-rotated

When I sync a photo album from iTunes on my PC to my ipad, photos that I have rotated and saved go back to the original orientation. I have tried re-saving them in MS Photo Manager and Fotosizer.  Can this be fixed, and will the corrections “keep” next time I sync?  Do I need an app to make the changes?...|orientation-syncing

After rewaking up my new ipad2 (fitted with 4.3.1 fw) its orientation was locked horizontally. The side button (that is set to control the orientation lock) was in the unlock position and even recycling it did not unlock the orientation. I had to switch ipad off and to restart it to recover unlocked orientation functioning. Did anyone of you encounter the same weird behaviour, even on ipad 1? Thank you for your kind help and feedback. It looks to be a random s/w bug. Thanks and cheers Emanuele ipad 2 3g 64Gb iOS 4...|ipad2-orientation-locked-sideways

It seems that every time I try for a saved photo it winds up in portrait, regardless of the screen at the time. All too often this means that the rot lock has to be used to view that photo later on.The only saved photo we have in that album in landscape is one that my wife did, absolutely accidentally, not aware she was doing it, just in the middle of looking at emailed pics.Related — is there a way to rotate pics and have them retain the new orientation? iMac G5 17" iSight 32GB 3G ipad Shuffles (1G/2G) Nano 5G Mac OS X (10.5.8)...|orientation-ofsaved-photos-ipad

I changed the portrait orientation the other day, and my mum called me today not being able to change it back.I dismissed her as being silly until she sent me a picture. In the bottom bar where you normally change it, instead of portrait orientation is a Volume Icon?? My dad has a habit of changing things around accidently so it is probably his fault... but how can we get the portrait orientation button back? Thank you!!...|portrait-orientation-option-disappeared

Apple has changed the screen orientation lock button to a mute button. To lock your screen orientation just double click so your in the multitasking menu slide left and on the far left is the screen orientation lock.

Halp! I like to read on my side in bed or in various positions in comfy chairs, so I used the orientation lock all the time.
