    Ipad2

    I need help! My iPad won't rotate to portrait view. It only stays on landscape. I'm wondering if it had anything to do with the recent upgrade. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi there-did you by accidentally slide that side switch to lock mode? Where the volume button is, the side switch is right above. Slide that and see if that fixes it.

    If not, go to: settings--general---use side switch lock. Make sure the side switch is checked for LOCK ROTATION.
