[iOS] Screen.orientation returns wrong values when switching from Landscape orientation to AutoRotation at runtime on iOS 16



Steps to reproduce:
# Open attached project (
# Switch target platform to iOS and make a build
# Open Xcode project and build to an iPhone
# Click "Landscape Left" or "Landscape Right" buttons to switch to one of these orientations
# Click "AutoRotation" and select all 4 allowed orientations
# Notice that orientation is immediately returned as "PortraitUpsideDown" while device is actually in portrait (not 100% of the time)
# Try rotating the device

Expected result: Orientations are reported correctly as you rotate the device.
Actual result: Orientations are flipped:
- when in Portrait orientation, app reports PortraitUpsideDown
- when in Landscape Left, app reports LandscapeRight
- when in Landscape Right, app reports Landscape or LandscapeLeft

Note: This doesn't reproduce if you switch to AutoRotation from a forced Portrait orientation.

    NOT FIXED!!! Enabling auto-rotation after entering the game, killing the process, and immediately entering the game again. Unity version 2021.3.28f1. iPhone 11 iOS 16.6

    I encountered the same issue with Unity 2020.3.37f1. The problem has been reported on iPhone 13 devices. In my case, even though I've only allowed Portrait orientation, the screen can still be rotated to Landscape.

    We have an issue with IOS 16. On a quick restart, the app may start in a different orientation than the setting in the project.

    Same issue on Unity 2021.1.15 to 2021.1.21
    My app is in LandscapeRight but the ScreenOrientation is Landscape?! (not in ScreenOrientation enum)
    And when it's portrait, the value is PortraitUpsideDown

    I am suffering from a problem in iOS16 where games can be run in Orientation that I have not authorized. (Occurs occasionally.)
    Could this bug be the cause?
