The image stopped going to landscape on my 4s after installing 7.0.?. Is there a lock somewhere? I tried following on line directions but cannot find lock.

iPhone 4S, iOS 7.0.2

    Hello Wally,


    The orientation lock control is now located in the Control Center on your iPhone.  If you swipe up from the bottom of the screen, you will see the option to lock or unlock the orientation:


    • Swipe up along the bottom of the screen to display Control Center (you can do this from any screen, including the Lock screen).
    • Tap the Screen Rotation Lock button.
    • If the button was highlighted, the button will appear dimmed after tapping it.



    I recommend reviewing the full article if the issue persists:
