Introduction

In this article I will try to teach you how to set the screen orientation of an iPhone. In other words, when we make an application in Portrait mode and test in the device, it's content position changes when we move the device into Landscape mode. To understand that use the following procedure.

Step 1

Open ViewController.Xib and click on the top side of the Property window of Xcode. Select file inspector and Unmark "Use Autolayout".

Step 3

Here we set Position (Autosizeing) of all outlets one by one.

First  I select Username Label and set it's size according to Coordinate (x, y). Here I fix it's right side:

Now I select the Text field of the username and fix it's middle portion:
