It took me several hours, off and on, to figure this one out. I don’t like for my screen on my iPads or iPhone to flip every time I move the device. Drives me nuts. The first thing I wanted to do after installing iOS 7 was to lock the screens of my iPads in landscape mode.
Here is how to do it. You’re welcome.
Open the Settings icon and look for Control Center. It’s something that is new with iOS 7. Turn on the two options. When you can see green they are on. All white, they are off.
Once you have authorized Control Center then you can access it on your devices. To access it you swipe up from the bottom and the Control Center appears. (I found it took some practice to make the “swiping” work the first time.)
If you want landscape saved, turn your device so that you see the landscape view. Then swipe up. The following image is the Control Center opened on my iPad mini. Tap the screen orientation lock icon and your screen is locked. To unlock it just tap it again.
This new way of completing this task is actually much faster and easier than previous versions. Once you learn how to do it.
