    Just wondering if there's anyone here with an Iphone 6 plus with the mainscreen landscape not working or working intermittently? It was working fine yesterday when I first got the phone but after I backed up the 6plus with all of my previous phone's data, the landscape doesn't seem to work anymore or could it be due to any other reason that I am unaware of?

    Landscape mode is working in applications like whatsapp and music but not on the main screen. Can anyone here tell me what could be wrong?

    I don't believe you can do landscape view in zoomed mode.

    I noticed this while looking at a demo model...bogus in my opinion. There is very little difference between standard and zoomed mode...no reason why shouldn't be able to put it in landscape mode while zoomed

    I have this exact same problem. I am expecting a call back from Apple tomorrow regarding an escalation to engineering.

    My phone is not in zoomed mode, I've done a full restore and it happens with a fresh phone with no apps installed. I will be very curious to see if Apple comes up with anything tomorrow.

    There are others with either no landscape or it's sticking in landscape mode, but putting in zoomed view does indeed prevent landscape from kicking in.

    This happens to me all the time and Safari is the worst which sucks because I like landscape mode the most.

    It's kind of hit or miss for my iPhone +

    I have found out that it is indeed due to the zoomed in mode that prevent the landscape mode from kicking in. But that said, it sometimes 'sticks' in portrait or landscape esp during whatsapp or some other applications.

    I had the same problem on my iPhone 6. Try calibrate your compass and level. It worked for me.
