OS 4.0 Breaks the Compass?

By April 13, 2010iPhone, Releases

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.
