Watched this on my iPad this morning: https://www.ana-cooljapan.com/contents/craftsmanship/interviews/

On my iPad it displays a “turn your smartphone phone vertically” message and even when showing a video and I tried to rotate to landscape, the message would come back.

I can’t think of any good reason for the phone to need to be vertical except for poor craftmanship, which is ironic given the content of the site.
