    I keep having trouble getting my iPad out of landscape mode the orientation lock is
    off. The only way to get it back to portrait mode is to restart my iPad. Is there anything I can
    do to fix this?
    Thanks

    Hello - 'orientation freezing' has been reported w/ certain iPads and may in part be related to the iOS installed, so first question is which iOS is installed on your device; if not the most recent, then an update/upgrade may help - I have an iPad Air 2 on iOS 10.1.1.

    Second, if not already done, try a 'Reset' (hold down both the ON-OFF & HOME buttons until the Apple logo appears - may take about 10 secs - then release and let your iPad reboot - no data, settings, or apps will be lost). Dave :)

    OK - try the 'Reset' if not already done and let us know - good luck. :) Dave

    My iPad Air 2 had the same problem and restarting it solved the problem. It's currently on iOS 10.2 beta 2 which could make a difference.

    My iPad 2 Air does this quite a lot now (on latest update 10.1.1). I'm using a magnetic cover, and I find that if I put the iPad on the home screen and close the magnetic cover, wait just a few seconds, then open the cover again, it then works fine.

    Yesterday, my iPad Air 2 was stuck in 'landscape' orientation - did a 'Restart' w/ immediate correction. Dave :)
