    Hi Bertha - welcome to the forum! :) I would first suggest that you 'Reset' the iPad (directions below if not familiar w/ the process) - let us know if this corrects the problem. Also, check in Settings > General > Use Side Switch To: - make sure that it is not set to 'Lock Rotation' and check the Side Switch (upper right side above the volume rocker). Good luck - Dave

    I had the same problem yesterday. After watching a youtube video, the home screen didn't go back to portrait mode any more. Tried to lock and unlock rotations, tried to get into an app and hold it in portrait way. Didn't work. Rebooting it did the work. Of course it would do for sure. Just thinking this is a bug easy to discover and fix. But failed to do so before release. Is it a sign that Apple is going downhill.

    Hi again Bertha - glad that the 'Reset' worked! Appears that three of us posted the same suggestion near the same time! :D Dave
