    The rotation lock is a very helpful feature. You can turn it on and whenever you watch a video, you can simply turn the smartphone sideways and it will automatically go into full screen mode. And if you like to type with a wider keyboard, you can do that just by turning the orientation of the iPhone 13. However, it is not a feature which is always wanted.

Imagine if you’re lying down and using the phone, and it randomly turns to landscape mode because you tilted a little and now you struggle to bring it back to the normal view.

You can control whether your screen will rotate or not. However, for those of us who always forget to turn it off and hate to open the control center after the screen has rotated, there is a much easier method.
