    I know it's my fault somehow, but don't know what's wrong.
    99% of the time l hold the iPhone with the white button at the bottom, like we all do.
    But my photos keep coming out upside down or sideways help please it's driving me nuts.

    If l am looking down it's worse

    Thanks in Advance

    The two volume buttons and the mute button go on the bottom when taking landscape pictures


    I don't know which button the 'white' one is

    I'm holding it the other way round when I'm taking landscape pictures:
    Home button at the left, Volume buttons and Mute button at the top.

    I can take pictures with the right orientation, even when I hold it upside down (Home button at the top). I don't think that matters.

    Do you view the pictures on a Windows Computer? Information on which side is up for iPhone photos is stored in the EXIF data attached to each photo. iOS crevices and Mac computers use this data to display the photo right side up. Windows computers tend to ignore this data when displaying the photos. You have to shoot landscape photos with the volume buttons on the bottom to always show the photo right side up in Windows.
    This is not a problem on computers running Windows 8 and later as they make full use of the EXIF metadata.

    That would be the Touch ID capable home button.

    I very rarely take landscape pictures, this shot is just to so you the orientation of my iPhone for normal vertical photos when they get flipped or go to the side. IMG_1902.JPG

    Hi all, not sure what has happened. But just recently all my photos are in the correct orientation. By the way l am not viewing them on my PC. This strange behaviour was in my iPhone 7

    The content is not important but that's exactly how I shot
    them. I did Airdrop the shots from my iPhone
    The iPhone is being held as in my post No.6
