Hey guys! How come we are unable to get the home screen of iPhone 11 to be in the landscape mode?

The last phone to support landscape mode is the iPhone 8 Plus. Sorry you are out of luck. Not even the Max size iPhones support it. Really annoying actually. I also miss the sidebar features in apps like Mail.

Wow, that is crazy!

Probably because of the stupid notch!

Yeah thats why I still use the iPhone 8 Plus. Just overall a more comfortable experience. The new phones with the notch may have bigger screens but they dont have nay more user screen real estate. I love the 1080p iPhone 8 Plus screen. And no notch!!! I hope they bring out an iPhone SE Plus.

They never implemented landscape on the FaceID phones because FaceID doesn‘t work in landscape. Maybe the new phones coming this year have 360deg FaceID authentication if we‘re lucky.
