Launch day preorder with a case on day 1. But I've been having problems getting apps to switch to landscape view and games to register any tilt motion. Calibrates compass no problem but when it comes to transitioning safari to landscape it doesn't work. And no orientation lock is not turned on.

Genius Bar appt in two days. Just curious if anyone else has this problem

Pretty sure this is just an ios8 issue. Experiencing it on family's 3 other i5's that were perfect before and my 4.7 6

Are all of y'all on 8.0.2?

My first Iphone 6 plus which had pretty bad dead pixels had this problem also. I was on 8.0.2

The replacement phone has 8.0. Going to leave it on 8.0 and see if the problem still occurs.

I had that happen with my 6 a couple times a day the first week. Are you on 8.0.2? I don't think I've had it happen on 8.0.2.

Either way, is anyone else having this problem or should I make a Genius Bar appointment
