    I have an iPhone 6 and this is the first iPhone I've noticed this on. It might be iOS 8 since I didn't install that on my previous one.

    The best way I can replicate the problem is by locking my phone while in text with the keyboard sideways. When you go to unlock, I have to flip the phone the other direction then to the upright direction to get the keyboard back to portrait. I never use the landscape keyboard and this happens every now and then when I unlock my phone, somehow. Kind of annoying so I wanted to see if others have this same thing occurring.

    Thanks everyone. I've been here off and on since the first iPhone, so Ive been lurking since the recent keynote. Very happy with my purchase. I debated which, 6 or 6 plus, for weeks it seemed.

    When I use Safari, I often can't get it into landscape mode without first turning it to portrait mode and then turning back to landscape. Sounds like a similar bug. It's irritating. Apple should start going with two-year hardware and software release cycles.

    I just locked mine in regular mode. I hate the flipping and flopping.

    I have similar issues. I just press the home button and go from there.

    I had the same issue with my 6 plus took it to the Apple Store and they wiped it clean and reinstalled software. It's been fine since.

    I was stuck upside down this evening.
    Lock screen was normal, but all home screens were 180 degrees out.
    Hard reboot fixed it....
