Its the Orientation lock - to keep your phone.ipad in portrait/landscape mode.

 

Double click the home key, swipe to the left in the running apps, and unlock it. ;-)

go on the homescreen and then double click to get onto multitasking and then slide left and click the icon at the end it prevents the screen from going landscape so it keeps it portrait
