Anyone else having this problem? I've got my ipad air 2 on the latest ios and the majority of the time for me to correct the orientation I need to turn the screen off and on again.

Yes I've had this issue on my iPad Air 2 too since iOS 10. I was hoping it was fixed with iOS 10.1 and then iOS 10.1.1, but it's not. Hopefully iOS 10.2 will fix it.

sometimes it works sometimes is not... i dont need to force restart my air2, that would be annoying... back to home or screen off/on works here.

Ironically it's just happened again and again the only way to get out of it was another hard reset.

Do users with the problem find it happens mostly when you turn on your device and immediately notice the screen will not rotate?

Yeah. Always.

Can't remember it happening with the early iOS 10 versions, (perhaps it did but very infrequently), but now it's a daily issue.

I'm having the same problem with our iPad Air2 since upgrading to latest IOS 10 (10.1.1). Today it's happened 3 times. The only fix is a hard reset. My iPhone SE does not have this problem... just the iPad.

I haven't seen this problem on my iPad since deleting the game "Bubble Cloud". This game runs in portrait mode only so it's possible there might be some kind of 'house keeping' not being done properly after the game is ended.

Not sure, but may be the cause.

Seems I previously posted this in the wrong thread.

It's still an ongoing issue in iOS 10.x. My mini 4 screen rotation sticks, and instead of restarting, the quickest way that I've found to correct it is to open the camera. After the camera is opened you can see the camera controls go to the appropriate orientation, and rotation works fine after that...until is randomly sticks again. I've had beta 10.2 on it as well, and the rotation still sticks from time to time. I reported the sticking issues in betas for 10.1 and .2 to Apple. Also, my wife has had the same occurrences on her mini 4. Who knows when/if they'll identify and resolve the issue?!

Okay, the "Bubble Cloud" game wasn't the culprit. My iPad Air2 still has this problem on IOS 10.1.1. It arbitrarily locks up in portrait mode.

'Mylo130' says opening the camera app - rotate it and back - that fixes the orientation issue. It does!! Thanks for that Mylo. Much faster fix than reset.
