    Mine did exactly the same. I only bought it on Sunday!

    Did any of the solutions offered in the thread work for you?

    Hi Scifan, I meant I did exactly as Dave had done and that seemed to solve the problem.

    Like the others, my iPad Air 2 (IOS10.2) has also suffered from sticking rotation. It has happened twice in the last fortnight, usually after a longish period of inactivity. A power-off and restart has cured it so far. Is anyone aware if Apple are looking into a cure?

    The rotational sticking seems to be a common complaint - HERE is a discussion from about 6 months ago - for myself, my iPad Air 2 continues to get stuck in 'landscape mode' several times a week - I just use the ON-OFF switch for correction which has always worked. Interestingly, if I switch to an app w/ only portrait view the orientation is correct but reverts to the 'stuck' landscape view when stopping the app. Dave :)

    Giradman,
    Mine seems the opposite, as it gets stuck in Portrait mode. Which is a pain, as I generally browse in landscape mode when using safari!

    Well, this morning and for the first time, my iPad was stuck in the Portrait mode also - checked the setting in the control panel and lock orientation was off; just turned off my device instead of doing a Restart - worked! So in the future, I'll give this quicker and simpler maneuver a try in the future. Dave :)

    I know this thread is now 18 months old, and I’ve had no problems until today (1st June).
    Yesterday I loaded iOS 11.4 onto my iPad Air2, and today it locked itself in portrait mode.
    No amount of opening and closing would correct it, and finally a soft restart put it right.

    Please tell me Apple haven’t been dumb enough to load an ‘old’ piece of code in the latest update!!!

    I have an iPad Air 2 on iOS 11.4 and haven't seen that problem.

    Thanks scifan57, let’s just hope it was a one-off then!
