iPad and orientation

iOS & iPadOS

Hello. I have an iPad Pro 9.7.
I love it, but I am very frustrated because I don’t want my iPad to switch to portrait mode. I have MyBabySim and stuff but I dannot play this very much because of this.

If you have apps that you use that go into portrait mode when you open them, then unless the dev updates it to support landscape mode, then there's nothing you can really do about it. In which case, I feel your frustration, as I'm not a fan of portrait mode.

However, I assume that you're talking about locking your orientation. You can do this by 1 of 2 ways. You can either double tap the home button & bring up the app switcher/control center, or you can swipe up with 3 fingers to get there. This method is way better than double tapping the home button. Once you get to control center, swipe until you hear lock orientation & toggle it on. Make sure your device is in the orientation you want it in before you do this. Hope thes helps!
