since downloading ios 6 my screen no longer automatically rotates when I change position. I often prefer to read the wide side and with accompanying keyboard for longer emails it's impossible. What's going on???

    Is there a lock symbol at the top of the screen next to the battery indicator ? If there is, then depending on what you've got Settings > General > Use Side Switch To set to (rotation lock or mute notifications), then you can lock/unlock the rotation by the switch on the right hand side of the iPad above the volume switch, or via the taskbar : double-click the home button; slide from the left; and it's the icon far left; press home again to exit the taskbar. The function that isn't on the side switch is set via the taskbar instead : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4085


    If there isn't a lock symbol then try a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    This was immensely helpful, not only with the particular question/problem but also with more knowledge about using the ipad functions. Thanks King Penguin! It truly solved my question and more.
