BlackBerry 10 Rotation Lock

Being able to use your BlackBerry 10 device in both portrait and landscape modes is a great thing. You can BBM or email while in portrait, then swap over to landscape for those large web pages. Simply rotating the device in either orientation gives you the ease of swapping between the two with no effort. But what happens when you're performing a task and you want to lock down orientation? Thanksfully you can do that with a quick swipe and a tap. Keep reading to find out how.

To lock your BlackBerry 10 device in portrait mode, enable rotation lock by performing the following steps:

  • Pull down from the top bar on the homescreen to load the settings panel
  • Tap the Rotation Lock icon

That's it! (No really, that's it) You're device is now locked to portrait mode. To unlock, tap the icon again.
