How to check if device orientation is landscape left or right in swift?


you can do something like,

if UIDevice.currentDevice().orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.LandscapeLeft{}else if UIDevice.currentDevice().orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.LandscapeRight{}else if UIDevice.currentDevice().orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.UIDeviceOrientationPortraitUpsideDown{}else if UIDevice.currentDevice().orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.UIDeviceOrientationPortrait{}

SWIFT 5

    if UIDevice.current.orientation.isLandscape {    } else if UIDevice.current.orientation.isFlat {    } else if UIDevice.current.orientation.isPortrait {    } else if UIDevice.current.orientation.isValidInterfaceOrientation {    }

SWIFT 3

if UIDevice.current.orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.landscapeLeft {} else if UIDevice.current.orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.landscapeRight {} else if UIDevice.current.orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.portrait {} else if UIDevice.current.orientation == UIDeviceOrientation.portraitUpsideDown {        } 


This works on Swift 3 & 4

switch UIApplication.shared.statusBarOrientation {    case .portrait:        //do something        break    case .portraitUpsideDown:        //do something        break    case .landscapeLeft:    //do something        break    case .landscapeRight:        //do something        break    case .unknown:        //default        break }


Swift 5.0:

UIDevice.current.orientation.isLandscape UIDevice.current.orientation.isFlatUIDevice.current.orientation.isPortraitUIDevice.current.orientation.isValidInterfaceOrientation

isFlat:Indicating whether the specified orientation is face up or face down (The device is held parallel to the ground with the screen facing downwards or Not).

isValidInterfaceOrientation:Indicating whether the specified orientation is one of the portrait or landscape orientations.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you have set some views to landscape form manually, so "isLandscape" value is not correct.

In this case you can use this condition:

if UIScreen.main.bounds.height < UIScreen.main.bounds.width {    print("LandScape Views")    print("Portrait Views")}

For example I wanted to play all videos in landscape form while my app was only for portrait form, so in video views I used this condition in order to check if the view is landscape or not, independent of the phone orientation.
