iPhone 6 Plus Homescreen Not RotatingWhen you turn your iPhone into horizontal position, all the app icons are rotated sideways and hence they appear in horizontal position. The horizontal position puts the iPhone’s dock onto the side thereby making your phone look like a dazzling, small iPad.

However, there are two things which you need to remember, if you want your iPhone 6 Plus’ Home Screen to rotate.

#1. The Orientation Mode has to be turned off.

#2. Standard zoom must be enabled. Instead, if you have enabled Zoomed in display settings, the Home Screen won’t rotate.
