When I rotate my iPhone while in Messages, a totally different input area appears. I never use this, can I turn it off?


Assuming you're talking about the Handwriting Input panel in iOS 10:

Rotate the phone to show the input area, then tap the keyboard icon, showing the keyboard, and it will keep the setting.

    Thank you! I didn't know what this was called so my Google-fu failed. – Maury Markowitz Mar 17 '17 at 15:53
