iPhone 6 Plus with ultra-big screen and tons of unique features have been able to catch the imagination of millions of users around the globe. Though it may have been slightly overtaken by iPhone 6, many users still favour the 6 Plus as it has packed in more qualities such as, better battery life. Home Screen rotation is another feature that makes iPhone 6 Plus appear like a small iPad.
Some iPhone 6 Plus users have recently reported that Home Screen is not rotating on their device. They have tried fixing it but they haven’t found any way out. So, what's the issue with it? Can it be fixed with immediate effect?
When 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.
Therefore, before moving ahead with the process of resolving Home Screen rotation issue, let’s first turn of Orientation Mode.
Simply swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen to bring up Control center and tap on Orientation Mode from the upper right corner to turn it off.
Step #1. Launch Settings app.
Step #2. Tap on Display & Brighness.
Step #5. Tap on Set from the top right corner.
Once your iPhone has restarted, just turn your iPhone into horizontal position to see the Home Screen rotation with immediate effect. That’s all there is with it!
If you still haven't got the solution, just put your iPhone into landscape mode and give it a shake. It might do the trick.
