Xperia Home Auto Rotate?

Just noticed that's not possible any more to enable the auto rotation of the Xperia Home? Just got the option to choose between big and small symbols ?!

Re: Xperia Home Auto Rotate?

Got some info on this.For Z5 the option is not there. Probably because there isn't a dock for Z5. But if it will be added I do not know.

Auto rotate does work but only when it's connected to a Dock, that's the same on the Z series phones (not the tablet).

What option? the home launcher has NOT rotated on the Z series unless it's connected to a Dock.

@uliwooly There was an update which allowed home screen rotation without dock. It is available on my Z2 on .232.

Re: Xperia Home Auto Rotate?

So is there any chance to report it to Sony Mobile to get that handy feature back on the latest phones?
