So I’m a bit late at posting this, but there have been tons of news on the new iPhone 4.0. I’m sure you’ve seen it. If not, you can head over here for the news coverage. The guys at Gizmodo seemed to have got them hands on a non working one. Apparently it’s the real deal since Apple wants it back.
But on another note. iPhone OS 4.0 beta 2 is out!! Wonder if it fixes the compass..
Ever since upgrading one of our iPhones to OS 4.0 we’ve been having a tough time getting the compass to work again. With 3.1.2 installed it worked amazingly well; but since updating it either constantly showed the message that it requires calibration, or gave an inaccurate account of where North is.
I was a bit skeptical that the update could’ve caused the issue but nevertheless as a last resort we rolled back to 3.1.2 and…it amazingly did the trick. Gripping stuff…haven’t seen any other accounts of people having this issue as a result of 4.0; but hopefully its something thats resolved in due course.
