How to Lock iPad Screen Orientation

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
With the release of iOS 4.2, the physical switch which allowed you to freeze the iPad's screen orientation was turned into a less useful mute button. Fortunately, it is possible to lock your screen's rotation using a few easy clicks.


  1. From any iPad screen or application, double click on the big home button on the bottom of the iPad.
  2. Swipe the bottom menu that appeared after you double clicked the home menu to the left.
  3. Touch the screen orientation lock button on the bottom left, which you uncovered by swiping left above.
  4. Notice the button changes to lock after you have switched it.


  • This works in portrait or landscape orientation.
