Does it bother anyone else that the icons will rotate 360° on the home screen. I don't like it, not real fond of the landscape rotation, wish I could turn it off (just the home screen), without going to "zoomed".

I don't mind it at all and I actually like the landscape orientation, though I usually use portrait for the home screen.

I like the rotation. But I've already had several situations where the rotation locked at the wrong orientation. I had to close and reopen it to get the orientation right. 8.0.2 still has several bugs in it. I know they will get it fixed in the next few patches.

I kinda don't like it either and yes I have found bugs too. I have been having problems with the camera in portrait

I don't even like the screen rotating on any iPhone. I leave mine locked and unlock for the occasions that I need it.

I haven't experienced any rotation bugs, but I have ended up using my phone upside down.

I like the rotation, but I hate the bugs. Sometimes my to ration gets locked. Usually when it does that my wallpaper is HUGE and stays HUGE and in the rotated state when the screen goes back to vertical.

My iPhone rotated when I was on a call once and stayed that way even when I right sided it. Then it stayed that way even when I was off the call it just wouldn't go back to the correct position so I cut it off and cut it back on and it came on correctly but that pissed me off a bit. They have some bugs to work out for sure.

My rotation gets locked in Safari pretty often. If I want it in landscape mode, then rotate to landscape mode. Don't make me gyrate the phone until it turns.

Yeah, I hear you. It gets to be a bit much with the gyration. No one really should have to do that and the remedy of cutting the iPhone off and then back on is not a viable solution at all.

Apple, please issue a fix ASAP! Thanks.

I have used my friend's 6 plus for a couple of days and prefer landscape orientation especially while chatting. The keyboard becomes big and ease to type.

I just found this thread, glad to know I am not the only one having rotation issues with the 6+. I hope Apple does something about this soon. I like landscape mode but it always gets stuck there or upside down.
