iphone-6s-gyroIt goes without saying that Apple’s spanking new iPhone 6s as well as iPhone 6s Plus will sport a brand new M9 co-processor which will also double up as a distribution center for the entire gamut of digital information that is picked from the different sensors on the handsets, gyroscope included, The iPhone 6s will make use of the InvenSense 6-axis gyroscope and Bosch Sensortec 3-axis accelerometer which is available on the previous iPhone model, although it does run into some issues with selected third party augmented reality (AR) apps.

Apparently, users report that as they attempt to check out the night sky using an AR app known as Sky Guide, which will lay over stars and constellations names and positions, the iPhone 6s fails in this regard as the map ends up floating all over the place. In other words, it points to a very real gyroscope issue that will most probably involve bad communication between the input from the gyro/accelerometer as well as the code itself.

Default Apple software like Maps work just fine, and chances are this boils down to buggy APIs that should be able to be fixed in double quick time. Well, at least the issue is acknowledged, so a fix should not be too far down the road now.
