I wants screen to quit rotating. This response fails to thank the writer for helpful advice and ignores two key points. The distinction between, switch and function, and the meaning of the word similar. The issue in this response is that, the function is not the same, which is true, however, at no point does the writer refer to the function on the iphone as being the same as the function on the ipad, thus rendering the response invalid and ignorant.
Secondly, the word, similar, is a comparative adjective used to compare two or more things. In this case the two things being compared are the button on the iPhone and iPad, which incidentally, are quite similar. So, closer scrutiny is required before responding to helpful answers, and good manners go a long way.
