    Same here. Thankfully I use the Messages app strictly in portrait mode.

    If you have indeed placed your device in DFU mode and then had iTunes install a fresh copy of the latest iOS version, and then set up your device as new (and not from a backup), then you should take the phone to the nearest Apple Store and have it exchanged. My iPhone 6 Plus rotates 360 degrees and back without any problems.
    sorry dude i just dont belive. there is no way you can be the only one that it works for.

    Probably because the 6+ has special landscape modes the 6 doesn't. So probably a software bug in relation to that.

    It also happens to me but only if I'm starting a brand new message thread. If I'm responding to a message and start in portrait I can rotate just fine to landscape and back. And since most of the time I'm replying to someone I already message with, I'd never noticed this before.

    Didn't read the whole thread but if I start a text and don't send it I can rotate back and forth. And still rotate after sending. Just my 2 cents.

    Nonsense. No one is upset with you. You simply brought an issue to our attention and discovered that you weren't alone. There's nothing wrong with that.

    Yup, this is exactly what happens...mine will switch between orientations if I choose a person to start a new text, but will not if I just start a new text without a recipient.

    No problem...sorry it took a while to figure out what exactly you were trying to report there. Initially I thought you were just saying it wouldn't text in landscape mode AT ALL...hopefully Apple will address it, but to be honest, until you pointed it out, I had never even noticed, so I doubt I'll lose any sleep over it, lol.

    I have had that happen on occasion. I kind of hate typing in landscape mode on the 6 Plus. It feels awkward but the additional buttons are nice to use sometimes. Restart and see if it will work. When I had the problem I usually exited out of messages. Closed all programs opened it again and it worked.

    This is not some kind of problem that can be remedied by closing the app and reopening it...it's simply a formatting issue on the 6 plus when composing a new text message with no recipient defined. If you are experiencing issues with landscape mode texting that is fixed by restarting the app, that is a totally different issue unrelated to the topic here.

    I'm curious... Do you by any chance have other keyboards installed on your 6 plus?

    I see that if I start a new text in portrait then turn to landscape and cancel the text the messages app will be in landscape. If I initiate a new text while in landscape the keyboard pops up on the portrait side with the input box half way over. I never noticed none of this because I usually text in portrait.

    Just the way it is right now...but I would imagine a "full screen" button will probably be added at some point, as they strive to make iOS more in sync with OS X like controls.
