Part 1: Why does my iPhone won't rotate and how to fix it

1: Screen rotation could be locked
When the screen rotation lock is engaged. Your device's screen won't be reorienting itself in any direction. To disengage the screen rotation lock on an iOS device, you need to enter the Control Center > Locate the button for the screen rotation lock > Press the Home button or swipe down from the top of your device's screen to dismiss the Control Center and go back to wherever you were before.
2: The App you are using might not support screen rotation
In fact, many apps for iOS devices simply don't let the device switch its screen orientation to landscape/portrait in order to preserve functionality. Simply go into an app that you know for sure supports changes to screen orientation (the Photos app, for example) and see if your device's screen rotates while you're using that app. If your device's screen doesn't reorient itself in accordance with its physical orientation even while you're in the Photos app, the app isn't the one to blame in your case.
3. Display Zoom might be interfering with screen rotation
To disable Display Zoom on your device, you need to locate and tap on Settings > scroll down to and tap on Display & Brightness > under the Display Zoom section, tap on View > Tap on Standard to select it as the default level of zoom > tap on Set > tap on Use Standard > Then your device will restart. Later you'll see that Display Zoom has been disabled and that your device is once again able to change its screen orientation while you are on the home screen.
