What's the default rotate symbol for iOs?

Is it the second icon in this Instagram iPhone app screenshot? It doesn't look like a rotate symbol to me (more like a back or undo button).

Yup. That looks like back/undo symbol to me. Here's what Google shows for "rotate icon": – dnbrv Jan 4 '12 at 19:39
Thanks dnbrv, I'm looking for the default button that is being used throughout many other iPad apps. – bart Jan 4 '12 at 20:22
Does the default photo viewer have the rotation option? (not an iOS user - don't know & can't check) – dnbrv Jan 4 '12 at 20:32

The button you gave as an example is a default iOS button for rotate since version iOS5 i think. It is used in photo app for the same purpose. (i highlighted it at the bottom on screenshot)

Back to cooking... ;)
