Lens auto rotate to focus which taking pictures

I used to have canon t5i which I bought from costco wholesale which camera lens (18-55mm) do auto rotate to focus the image while taking photos now i have canon t6i which I bought from bestbuy this camera lens doesn't auto rotate to focus the picture it just capture the image whatever it detect without rotating the lens to focus. Is this the problem with lens or camera or what ?

What you're saying is that sometimes the front element rotates (making it hard to use a polarizing filter) and sometimes it doesn't; right? That's entirely a function of the lens. In most modern lenses the front element doesn't rotate, but in a few cheaper lenses it does.
