    When you unlock your home screen and the screen is in landscape mode and won't go back to portrait for love nor money sorry for not explaining

    Exactly this. I did a DFU restore and setup my 6+ as new and the rotation is perfect now.

    It's happened to me frequently over the last several iPhones / iOS. Don't several restore / backup. Never done setup as new - need to retain my iPhone messages.

    That's not a viable solution.

    What's the point of backing up if you have to do a setup as new anyway? Setup as new isn't an answer. It's just a sweeping "fix" without resolving the issue.

    May not be viable, but it is a solution and would most likely resolve the issue. Or jailbreak so you can perform invasive surgery. Not many ways to go in and 'fix' the closed system that is iOS.

    Another alternate would be restoring different backups, deleting certain apps. Something introduced to the phone caused this to happen, so taking stuff could see positive results. Same as a restore though, it's shots in the snappy, buttery dark.

    This happened to my mom a few months ago. Did one DFU at home and another at the Apple store and the issue still persisted, so the Genius thought it was a gyroscope issue and replaced the 6 plus without a fuss.

    Incorrect.

    The "something introduced" was iOS 9. I have this rotation issue on my 6S Plus and I restored from a backup. It was NOT evident prior or on my iPhone 6. It's a software issue that needs to be fixed by Apple. It's not an end user issue nor is it anything the user did.

    Lack of info on my part then. Hope they resolve it in an update.

    Reset All Settings. That did the trick for me, and others. It's annoying, but better than setting up as new.
