How to lock the screen orientation in iPad

We all know that iPad changes screen orientation from landscape to portrait and vice versa based on the sliding. But when the users hold the iPad in angled position the desired screen orientation may not always happen. This can be fixed by locking the screen orientation using the iPad settings. To disable or lock the screen orientation in iPad,

  • Swipe from bottom to top to access menu option


  • Now Tap and lock the screen orientation available on the left hand side.


After locking the screen orientation would be displayed as locked as shown below.


This feature would be useful when you are lying down on your bed and reading a book using iPad.
