[iOS] Changing the screen orientation via a script sometimes results in corrupted view on iOS 10




Priority: 3Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 2No workaround

When the orientation of the screen is changed via a script (with Screen.orientation) on iOS 10 devices, sometimes the screen remains in portrait orientation, but the game view gets flipped and goes over the edge of the screen and leaves black area in the bottom part of the screen.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open the attached project.
2) Build 'MainScene' for iOS.
3) Run on an iOS 10 device.
4) Press the 'Switch to landscape' UI button.

If the button is clicked 2-3 seconds after launch - the rotation should fail - black area appears at the bottom of the screen, half of the game view is not visible. If it does not, quit the app completely, re-launch it and repeat step 5). This occurs with both Metal and OpenGLES on iOS 10.

Reproduced on:
5.5.0b5, 5.4.1p3, 5.3.6p6

    One of the worst bugs and Unity just keep asking you to buy their 2017 pro. Sorry, no way with such poor service.
