    Fixed it!! Hard start your device! Actually POWER DOWN by holding down on power button and then holding down again to start it back up again!

    I have an iPad Air2 and am experiencing this regularly. The hard reset is the only solution. This started after iOS 10.1 ARGH! I hope Apple gets the message and develops a fix to whatever they broke.

    Device: iPhone 6s / 64 mb / iOS 10.02
    Problem Desc.: Doesn't rotate at all after iOS 10. 10.02 didn't resolve.

    Thanks - looks as though I'm good now. Pulled up control panel as you advised and found the the padlock disabled or locked. Unlocked and now have screen rotation again. Thank you once again.

    This happens to me fairly often in Messages on my 7 Plus. I initially thought it had to do with my case but it happens periodically even outside of my case. Hopefully it's something Apple takes notice to.

    I'm curious on the terminology here. In my experience, a "hard reset" meant that you were wiping your device. A "soft reset" was simply powering it down and back on again. Just for lack of confusion when providing advice, do most people understand a "hard reset" to be simply turning the phone off and back on again?

    This started happening on average once a week since I updated my iPad Air 2 to iOS 10.

    The only fix is to turn the iPad off and on again.

    When I want to say "force reset" (holding Power + Home buttons), I say force reboot to avoid confusion.
    Because for me too, a reset means wiping your device.

    The fun part is now going to be explaining to use the volume down button instead of the home button on iPhone 7/7+.

    Me too.

    Fwiw, Apple calls it "restart" and "force restart". That seems canonical to me.

    I have a solution to this issue, it fixes it for me without reboot.

    1. Orient the phone the way it is stuck.
    2. Enable the orientation lock (Swipe up)
    3. Wait 5 seconds
    4. Return to home screen
    5. Wait 5 seconds.
    6. Lock screen.
    7. Wait 5 seconds
    8. Change the phone to portrait orientation in your hand
    9. Unlock the phone.
    10. Remove orientation lock from step 2

    This works for me 90% of the time and is faster than a reboot.
    just wanted to thank you and say this works like a charm, though frequently I need to repeat the steps (at most 3 times so far) to get the screen to rotate.

    I'll mention that while this fixes the rotation issue, I've found that it breaks again very quickly unless the device is restarted.

    Just curious, is anyone else have a iOS 10 bug where screen rotation fails often? Just want to make sure it's not from dropping my phone. :/
    Yeah mine gets funky with changing to landscape mode and then sometimes in an app, won't go back to portrait mode, so I have to exit the app and the home screen will switch back.

    I've also noticed sometimes when I set my phone down, putting it flat at times will activate a switch to landscape, drives me nuts lol

    I am having the same problem especially after the last iOS 10 update. I have an iPad Air 2. It is very annoying. I have to shutdown and restart to get it to work again. Definitely a bug Apple needs to address.

    I found a simpler work around. Simply rotate to the orientation that the device is stuck in then lock the screen. Wait about 5 seconds and rotate the device. Wait another 5 seconds and unlock the device. That usually fixes it.
