I am working with a new iPad Air 2. I cannot figure out how to change the view to landscape.. There is no side button, and I am tired, but I cannot see a preference in Settings.

  • are you on iOS 8.1 ? – Ruskes Oct 23 '14 at 0:47
  • Good thinking. thanks, but yep. 8.1 (12B410) – David DelMonte Oct 23 '14 at 1:26

There is apparently an option to adjust screen rotation in the Control Center on the iPad Air 2, since it has no side switch. (Control Center can be accessed by swiping up from he bottom of the screen).

  • Thanks Scot. You are right on.. I've added a comment below to state explicitly -- but for the record - as of 8.1, the Control Center has 6 buttons in the center of the panel. Lock/unlock is the last on the right. – David DelMonte Oct 23 '14 at 1:43

The just released Apple iOS 8.1 fixes the

Fixes bugs that could cause screen rotation to stop working

among other stuff.

Where is it:

You probably have your switch set to be used for mute instead of rotation lock. Click on the setting and when in that screen select general look in the right hand side panel. Setting > General. > USE SWITCH TO: select the "Lock Rotation" option.

  • I didn't vote down, so, I pushed it back up.. I can not find either a switch, or a lock rotation setting. This is my third iPad, so I'm familiar where the settings used to be.. – David DelMonte Oct 23 '14 at 1:32

  • That's it! In the center of the Control Center, there are 6 buttons. The lock is the last button on the right. Thanks for helping, and especially the link to apple insider. – David DelMonte Oct 23 '14 at 1:41
