issue here: related to the
iOS behavior of this plugin.  The basic issue is that when the screen is
locked and then unlocked in iOS, it doesn't automatically return to the
orientation the user had before locking.  It will respond if the user
manually turns the device a few times, but it can result in the orientation
getting "stuck" in the locked position temporarily until the user starts
turning the device.

My solution is to record the position the phone is in before locking and

doesn't occur on Android (at least on versions that I've tested, 6.x and

I'd welcome any comments/reviews/feedback!
