  • It's correct in landscape. In portrait it's rotated, but in that case it's kind of correct - you had rotated the actual physical camera, which presumably returns images with a fixed orientation, so the image returned is rotated.

    Most software on iOS probably auto-rotates images somehow, maybe by using image metadata in the photo? C2 doesn't have access to that info I don't think. I'm not sure if this qualifies as a bug or not, or if it ought to be Safari that returns a rotated image instead.
