Microsoft Surface has a rotation lock hidden in the software. Unlike Apple’s iPad, there is no physical button present on Surface for rotation lock. iPad’s physical button, which is present on its side, can be configured either as a mute/unmute button or as rotation/orientation lock/unlock button. Apart from this physical button iPad also has a rotation lock option hidden under Switcher. As Surface runs on Microsoft’s Windows operating system so the rotation lock is located somewhere else.
