iPad Tip 13 - Lock Rotate

Lock Rotate

This may not qualify as much of a secret, since Apple promotes the feature, but in my early
experience, it's terrifically useful. Flick the switch above the volume controls to lock screen
rotation. The iPad is quite sensitive to orientation, and rotates its screen with little provocation.
Locking rotation means sticking with the view you're in, even as you shift position, or place the
iPad flat on a surface.
