iPhone 5 Stuck in Landscape Mode
Some iPhone users found that the phone ended up getting stuck in landscape mode. This usually happened when they tried using the camera in landscape mode. Users were not able to come out of landscape mode after using the camera. The best way to fix it is to lock orientation to portrait mode.
Solution 1: Lock Orientation to Portrait Mode
- Swipe up from the bottom of the phone to bring up Control Center on the screen
- You will find a lock on the top right corner of the screen, tap on the lock to make sure that is not unlocked any longer
- Once the phone is fixed on portrait mode you can shoot images or videos in portrait mode without any problems.
Solution 2: Restart your phone
If your phone 5 is frozen in landscape mode and it does not allow any changes at all to the phone, then restart your iPhone and check if the problem is fixed.
