If your Iphone auto rotate is not working, maybe you'd disable the auto rotate function on it. When you see a circle icon on top right of your iPhone screen, it indicates that your auto rotate is locked or accidentally disabled. My office mate encountered this issue and I manage to solved by doing the steps below.
