    The home screen won't rotate unless I open a program, rotate, then close out to home screen. It won't do it any other way. Anybody else have this issue?

    I had that problem with iOS8 so I don't think it's a iOS9 thing. In fact, I haven't experienced it yet after the update. But I've only been using 9 for a couple of hours so I'll reserve judgement.

    This has been going on since iOS 8 on my Air 2.

    happening on my rMini 2 also. It seems like these orientation bugs on the iPads always show up on first release and are fixed in the second. hang on.

    What build number do you have. I had this problem through iOS 9 beta 5 on an iPad 3. No issues on iOS 9 GM but it seems like got the issue back on iOS 9.1 beta 1. I find that if I swipe the home screen it rotates properly.

    Swiping works. Build is what they released today to consumers.

    Try to reset your network settings! It worked for me.

    Funny, I had the opposite problem with iOS 8. Sometimes, when I unlocked the iPad and it went right into Safari, the rotation would be wrong. Only when I went to the home screen, it rotated.

    I am not having any problems with rotating, not with the home screen or applications.

    Had this problems on the beta. On the GM i had it for the first day, then everything ok. There must be something that triggere it but i could not isolate it. Try to reboot/hard reboot or reset settings. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful than this.. :-/

    I'm having the same rotation issue. I have to swipe the main ipad screen in order for it to rotate or open an app. Anyone find a fix outside of restoring, rebooting, resetting settings? Tried everything so far.

    I was having this issue on my iPad mini 2, found it quite odd having to open an app to get it to rotate. Well, sometimes my background would rotate but not the icons... Anyways, rebooting the iPad seems to have solved this for now.

    This happened to me right after I upgrade my Mini 2. I went online and found others reported it with older versions. The first real solution I saw was to "Reset All". So I did. Unfortunately, that cost me things like all my passwords. So I did a restore from an encrypted backup. That got be back everything AND the screen worked properly again.

    I saw someone here said just Reset Network Settings so maybe that was all that was needed (does that lose passwords to networks though?).

    Or it may just be a fluke that a few get any time they upgrade (or maybe it happens on some restores too). Could be I could have restored without resetting things first, but that really doesn't save any meaningful time. And when you reset things, you can see immediately if the screen works.

    There are a bunch of "reset" items. Who knows which is the critical one?

    Anyway, if you have the time, you might try reset ALL, see if the screen works, and then restore (make sure your backup is encrypted first so that a restore gets back your passwords - a non-encrypted backup won't keep those).
