How To Lock The Screen Orientation On The iPhone 5

I love my iPhone, don’t know where I would be without it, but more importantly, I would go mad if I didn’t know the little functions behind it.

When I’m in bed, leaning to one side, it does my head in when I’m texting away and the screen orientation just keeps on changing. Luckily, we can lock this and I’m going to share with you how to lock or unlock the screen orientation on you’re iPhone 5.

The first thing you need to do is double tap the home button. This is indicated on the image below:

This will show the running apps at the bottom of the screen. What you need to then is slide these apps across to the right and this will reveal the music buttons as well as the screen orientation button. The button is indicated below:

Just press that button and you’re done! No more annoying screen rotations when you’re lying down!
