I appreciate my iPhone 6s Plus’ ability to display the Home screen in landscape mode, but in practice I rarely use it or even want it. With a stock iPhone 6s Plus, there’s no way to prevent the Home screen from rotating without turning off rotation altogether. But a new jailbreak tweak called Nuus will allow you to isolate rotation locking to just the Home screen.

Nuus Rotation Lock Home screen

You can download Nuus free of charge from the BigBoss repo. It’s a tweak that works with both the iPhone 6 Plus and the newer iPhone 6s Plus.  Once installed, the tweak begins working immediately. I tested it out, ensuring rotation lock was disabled, and the Home screen remained in portrait mode even when rotating the phone on its side.

Nuus features no options or settings, which is unfortunate. I think it would be nice if there was a rotation lock toggle that just applied to the Home screen that could be adjusted from the preferences. I also think that it would make a handy Flipswitch toggle as well.

Again, Nuus is available right now for free on the BigBoss repo. Share your thoughts about the tweak down below in the comment section.

  • I never was a fan of the home screen rotation, however I have been using the Flex 2 tweak to disable this. It does the work and it is almost as a toggle as well.

    Been using notate since the jailbreak released. Hate how my iPhone 6s Plus would lag sometimes. It would just get stuck in landscape

    You can you can disable the rotation in settings no need to jailbreak just go to the home screen swipe up on the bottom portion of the screen then a menu will appear it’s that simple

      You obviously don’t get the point of the jailbreak… It only locks the home screen rotation but leaves rotation unlocked for the rest of the apps. A lot of people like me don’t care for the home screen to lag into landscape. I’ve been using Notate and that’s been working and have been for a while.

        Just use the zoomed option under display zoom and it removes that feature but of course ur app icons will now be slightly bigger.

    I thought that you returned the 6s plus and kept the 6s rose gold. Was this the original 6 plus?

  • cool and can also use portrait lock tweak for certain apps u want in portrait only etc 🙂

      I too have been using Notate ever since it was released. If only the dev were to update to lock certain apps like Messages and Mail, I’d even pay for that added feature.

        I know I am late to the party but I too would love this feature. When I was on android I used an app called Tasker that I used for many things including this. Activator is about as close as I have found to Tasker but there have been many times that I wanted to do something on my iPhone and just thought “I could have this done in like 2 minutes in Tasker.”

    When did Jeff get a 6S Plus?
