Use Silent/Ring Switch for Locking Screen Rotation in iOS 9 on iPhone [How To]

For an iPhone lover, who is continuously hooked to his device, he knows every new feature and updates announced in WWDC 2015. To make iPhone’s tactical experience richer, iOS 9 is bolstered with many features that might escape the attention of a pro-iPhone user. Recently, I have spotted a cool feature that gives me ease to rotate the screen on and off from the left button, which is actually meant to keep my iPhone on silent and ring mode.

Though this feature is available in iPad earlier, for iPhone users it is a welcome change if they have enabled their iPhones with iOS 9.

Earlier, I had to go to control center to lock and unlock rotate screen option. But now with this feature, I can easily do this from the left side switch.

If you also want to use this feature, here is a way to use the Ring/Silent Switch to Lock Rotation on your iPhone in iOS 9.

How to Use Silent/Ring Switch for Locking Screen Rotation in iOS 9 on iPhone

Step #1. Launch Settings on your iPhone → Tap on General.

Step #2. Now tap on Lock Rotation below USE SIDE SWITCH TO.

Now you can use the ring/silent switch to lock and unlock the screen rotation feature on your iPhone.

If you want to revoke this facility, then tap on the Mute right below the Lock Rotation.

Please note that iOS 9 is in its Beta version, and therefore, one has to explore its features continuously. If you find something worth sharable, you can always share with us. Apple would launch the final version of iOS 9 in fall 2015. As of now, there can be some bugs and issues that need to be highlighted.
