CHANGING SCREEN ROTATION
See if your iPad has a side switch.
One way to control screen rotation is by using the side switch. You can assign two functions to this side switch – mute or rotation lock. I find it handier to use it for rotation lock since you can quickly mute sound from your iPad using the volume rocker switch just below the side switch. You can rapidly reduce volume to zero (mute) by holding volume down for about two seconds.
You can assign rotation lock to the side switch from the Settings pane. Go to Settings > General and look for Use Side Switch to
The other way to control or change screen rotation is by using the Control Panel. In iOS 11 or earlier:
Swipe Up from the Bottom Edge of the Screen. This will open the Control Panel. Use the button to lock or unlock rotation.
To activate control panel when the iPad is running iOS 12 or later
Swipe Down from the Upper Right Corner of the Screen. This will open the Control Panel. Use the button to lock or unlock rotation.
