    Nothing but trouble on ipad 3 since upgrade to ios7. No problems at all before that with anything.


    All buttons stopped working as well as rotation and screenlock with upgrade to ios7

    Reset the iPad, restored via iTunes. No help.

    Was about to give up on this iPad but suddenly everything started working again.

    I'm my case after forgetting it in the car, very cold outside, but probably a fluke.

    I am pretty much expecting it to stop working again until I see some confirmation of all this

    Ah well, confusing...

    I also had this problem............use 4 or 5 fingers on screen and spread "outwards" to show your app history pages, then delete them by flicking them upwards out of the sceen. This clears all short term page histories, which clears the ipad memory. This seems to solve a few problems, including the auto rotate lock / unlock. It's worth doing this once or twice a week any way !!

    Good luck !

    Same problem with new iPad mini retina.  Happens intermittently, and is only "fixed" by rebooting.

    I have the same problem

    Brought it to the apple store told it was a hardware proplem and I need a new Ipad.

    Why did it not get stuck on landscape ?.

    You can fix the screen rotation lock by either closing the apps or soft reset (holding power and home button together until it reboots). Memory will be released so that screen rotation can be active again. IOS 7 was released hastily to time with iPhone release. Remember iphone is Apple's crown jewel. Even with subsequent updates, there are still way too many bugs. Biggest problem right now is low memory crash and screen lock is result of poor memory management and not enough physical ram memory.

    for me it's app related.

    All my ios7 apps rotate no problem but the kelbytraining app definitively won't.

    i tried all the stuff mentionned but did not work.

    i've been waiting for these people to update for a few months now..

    I have the same issue. Yes, I checked the lock settings/etc..

  • Gary Hughes Level 1 (5 points)

    Well, 7.0.4 made mine worse. 7.0 broke it completely, and it was locked in portrait with the home button at the top. Weeks later, I played a flight sim that used the accelerometer heavily and the screen started rotating as it should. Yesterday, I reluctantly updated to 7.0.4 and now I can't always rotate the screen, but even when it does work, it has a serious lag, like 3 or 4 seconds after I rotate, it may rotate. And it will never rotate a full 180. I have to go back and forth several times to get it to work.


    I've never been less happy with a product that I've paid more than a hundred bucks for.

    adding another voice to this. I have the exact same issue on my old ipad 3 and new mini retina.

    Occasionally auto rotation stops working and a reboot fixes it for a while. Happens at least once/day. Is so far the only issue that has made me gun-shy about updating my iphone 5.


    Does not appear to be app-related. Has happened while using Nook app, Safari, Chrome, and I think Gmail. continues when I exit to home. Always requires reboot.

  • bobandia Level 1 (0 points)

    Yep, same here.  Tried everything suggested and still stays in landscape.  I have not updated my iPhone yet because of fear of the same happening.  Anyone heard from Apple on this?

  • bobandia Level 1 (0 points)

    OK, so I am talking to ATT about another issue and told him about the iPad problem and he says try resetting the iPad.  Go to General, reset, reset all settings.  After doing that and reentering passwords and such it worked.  Hope this is a permanent fix, but at least it works for now.
