Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to switch to the landscape mode on the iPhone 6S Plus.
You may be aware that there is a button in the control center.
You can access the control center by swiping up from the bottom of the home screen.
When the menu appears, the far right icon at the top of the screen with a lock and an arrow is the "Screen Rotation Lock" icon.
When this button is activated, the screen will be locked in a portrait-style position.
You can see that the button is currently turned off, but my phone is not switching to landscape mode.
This is because the display is set to zoom. You may not realize when you set up the zoom display that some of the landscape features are disabled on the iPhone 6S Plus.
To change this, click the gear-shaped settings icon.
When the settings menu opens, click on "Display & Brightness".
When the "Display & Brightness" section opens, click on "View".
A new screen will appear that will say "Display Zoom" at the top.
Below "Display Zoom" you will see two buttons: "Standard" and "Zoomed". Make sure "Standard" is selected by clicking it once.
When "Standard" is selected, it will be highlighted in blue.
Then, press "Set" at the top right corner of the screen. "Set" is located just below the battery icon.
A confirmation box will appear at the bottom of your screen that says "Changing Display Zoom will restart iPhone".
If this is the action you'd like to take, press "Use Standard".
When you are finished, press the "Home" button on your device.
You will notice the icons are in a landscape position.
