    Did apple take this feature away in ios4?

    On my 3gs photos reorient themselves when I hold my phone horizontally.

    On my ip4, even when viewing pictures taken in landscape mode they do no orient themselves when I hold the phone horizontally.

    what gives?

    Do you have the orientation lock on? If not, it could be a problem with your accelerometer.

    Obligatory question: Have you restarted the phone by pressing and holding both the home button and top button?

    Works correctly upon restart. Hopefully it was just a fluke...

    Do other apps correctly rotate?
    If so, I doubt it's a hardware problem.

    Landscape orientation lost on 3GS in-built s/w

    Further to above, can anyone help please?:

    I suddenly got this about a week ago. I have tried downloading the latest version (4.1); switching the unit off and back on again; trying the support web suggestion of testing Calculator - "■To test, open the Calculator application while holding the iPhone vertically (portrait mode). The standard calculator should appear. Then rotate the iPhone to a horizontal position (landscape mode), and the scientific calculator should appear." - It does Not. However Carpenter software "plumb line" still shows the sensor is working fully, just no software is picking up the info and re-orientating to Landscape anymore.
    Is there some setting i have changed?
