    Since updating to iOS 8.4 on my Air 2, my orientation lock gets stuck on the last orientation of the app I eas using. The only was to change it is to turn it on & off in control panel, then shut it off & on.
    I haven't read anything, yet, on this problem, and did a search on orientation lock before posting.
    Anyone else experiencing this? If yes, any solution?
    Csn anyone point me to any possible bug notes on this?

    Have you tried a reset (hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears). Sometimes this fixes what a simple restart (off/on) doesn't.

    You could also try Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This won't delete anything, but it does default a lot of settings and you'll go through a partial setup procedure again. It tends to help when settings seem to be getting stuck on/off despite what the switch says.

    You'll want to go through all your settings afterwards and tweak them back to your preferences.

    Note: Be careful not to use the Erase All Contents and Settings choice instead. That does erase everything.

    Yes, I did the simple reset. I forgot to add that. It came back in a day.
    Didn't do the reset-all, though. I hate having to try and remember all the settings that I had set.
    I will do that, if I get desperate. It's a minor annoyance that I hope the next update fixes.
    Thanks for the reply!

    I'm experiencing the same problem on my iPad Air 2. I have done a full restore but the problem remains.

    I assume it is not down to one app?

    That's what I thought at first but I haven't been able to pinpoint it to one app. i'm beginning to wonder if this problem is due to a bad batch of a certain component.

    I think it is a calibration issue, when it is stuck I load the app Compass HD it asks me to do a calibration and when done it solves the problem.

    I've noticed the same thing, but it fixes itself on mine.
