    Today I was taking pictures with my iPhone 6 when I noticed my pictures were showing upside down. The display orientation also showed that the camera was configured upside down even though I was holding the phone in normal portrait mode. I've seen a few posts on the Apple forms and others reporting the same issue. I was just wondering if anybody else has seen this issue? This is the first time it happened and cycling the power has fixed it for now.

    There's definitely something wrong with how the iPhone 6 is storing these pictures. I have the 6 Plus, and when I take photos in landscape orientation, they often show up in my Photos sideways. Yet when I view them on my computer, they're correctly oriented again. So while the orientation is being recorded in the metadata, I imagine it's a problem with iOS 8. Hopefully they fix it in 8.1.

    From reading the Apple form a couple of iPhone 5s users were also reporting the issue. Next time it happens I'll take a screenshot. You can see the HDR auto, menus and the camera icon display upside down.

    I'm having the same problem as well. I heard that when you go to apple to complain they only ask you to reset the phone.
    Have anyone found a solution?

    These iPhones are just littered with problems. It's getting seriously embarassing.

    Sounds like a random iOS 8 software bug. I've never experienced it. Submit a bug report to Apple, suggest that everyone else in this thread do the same, then move on.

    I've had the same issue and reported the bug to Apple. I don't know if it's related but I get the same issue in FaceTime when answering a video call. The camera orients only me upside down.

    not possible apple is perfect, only google beta tests its users.

    I haven't had it happen in Camera+ so I'm wondering if it affects all the apps that use the standard camera software.

    Subscribing to this and adding a "me too".

    iPhone 6 4.7". I thought it was just me, but I see this problem particularly when I take landscape shots. The orient as portrait after taken, and refuse to upright themselves unless edited.

    Disturbing.
