Description Scott MacDougall 2016-09-04 22:07:47 UTC
In previous versions of Xamarin.Forms, you could set Upside Down as a supported orientation in Info.plist, and the screen would correctly rotate. In the latest version, this is no longer the case. I believe it's a result of this pull request: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/147

To fix this, I had to implement a custom renderer and override GetSupportedInterfaceOrientations. This behaviour should be supported without the use of a custom render as it was in previous versions of Xamarin.Forms.

To reproduce this issue, you just need to create a new Xamarin.Forms solution, and add UIInterfaceOrientationPortraitUpsideDown to the supported orientations in Info.plist of the iOS project. On version, the screen will not rotate when upside down.

Closing as invalid as I didn't realize that implementation of SupportedInterfaceOrientations was also required in native Obj-C and Swift.
