iPhone XR to TV Orientation Issue

(Bobby Jae) #1


When I connect my iPhone XR directly to a TV using a HDMI connector, the screen orientation is 90 degrees off. The orientation was fine with my old iPhone 6s. Is there a compatibility issue with the new iPhones?

Not sure about that Bobby, but is there an issue with other apps screen orientation when connecting through HDMI?

Hi did you ever resolve this issue? I just set Zwift up and had exactly the same orientation issue after connecting my iPhone XS to an HDMI adapter to TV after having Rouvy connected the same way via HDMI without any orientation issues, any suggestions would be appreciated thanks,

Hi Richie,

I did not. I was hoping someone at Zwift would be able to help…

Hi Vincent,

Other apps run fine using HDMI. Only Zwift is 90 degrees off instead of Landscape mode.

Looks like the latest update of Zwift resolved this issue.

I’ve had the same issue today on my new IPhone XR. I swapped back to my IPhone 7 and it was fine.

Did you update iOS to the latest version? I believe they fixed this issue.

Thanks. That sorted it, wrongly assumed my iOS was up to date, with it being brand new.

Hi all, I just got the same issue while trying Zwift for the first time. I got an Iphone 6s with genuine Apple AV adapter. My IOS and Zwift App are up to date. The app is in landscape on my phone but vertical on my TV. I didn’t find any post with similar issue recently, should I open a case to support? Thanks
