iPhone doesn't rotate automatically

All of a sudden my iPhone 5 doesn't rotate from vertical to horizontal display when I turn the device. Anyone have any similar problem, or a fix for this?

You probably have enabled rotation lock.

Turn on your phone, slide up and open the bottom control panel. Tap on the 5th button to turn off the rotation lock. Test it out.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

That was it. Thank you. I guess I should read the manual more thoroughly.

It happens, don't worry about it. Even someone like myself, who has been using Apple's touchscreen devices since iOS was actually called iPhone OS, makes mistakes. My iPhone was doing the same thing last week and I couldn't figure it out until I remembered, after about half an hour, that I had enabled the rotation lock.
