    Your orientation lock is switched on. You can access it by sliding up from the bottom of the screen. It locks the orientation in landscape or portrait.

    To turn off Orientation Lock, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center, then tap the lock icon with the arrow around it.

    Orientation Lock is used to lock your iPad in Landscape or Portrait mode so that the iPad won't change orientations if you rotate your device around.
