As mentioned above, photos can end up being incorrectly oriented in the Photos app. This commonly happens when you flip your iPhone into Landscape mode and then take a Photo.
Follow the steps below to Rotate Photos on iPhone or iPad using the default Photos app on your device.
1. Open the Photos app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Next, tap on the Photo that you want to rotate.
3. Once the Photo is open, tap on the Edit link located at the top-right corner of your screen (See image below)
In case you cannot see the Edit link, tap on the Photo in order to activate the top menu on your iPhone.
4. On the Photo Editor Screen, tap on the Crop icon located at the bottom-left corner of your screen (See image below)
5. On the next screen, tap on the Rotate icon located near the bottom left corner of your screen (See image below)
This will cause the selected Photo to rotate 90 degrees.
6. Tapping the Photo again will make it Rotate to 180 and tapping it a third time will cause the Photo to Rotate to 270 degrees. Keep tapping on the Photo till you get it to orient correctly on the screen of your iPhone.
Tap on Done from the bottom right corner of your screen, whenever you get the Photo to Orient the way you want it (See image below)
Similarly, you can Rotate other photos which may have ended up incorrectly oriented on your iPhone or iPad.
