The iPhone 6s with limited functions for iOS 9: The new version of Apple’s operating system for mobile devices brings quite a few issues. A bug related to the gyroscope and compass to interfere, and thus impair Augmented Reality apps.
For example, should the App Sky Guide on iPhone 6s running iOS 9 not working properly, reports AppleInsider. Usually, the user turns his iPhone to heaven and sees an overview of various celestial bodies. iOS, 9 with the update to iOS 9.0.1 would have the view of the sky on the other hand drift uncontrollably.
Fault lies in the API from iOS
Apparently there is the error in the programming of iOS 9, which prevents the integration of sensors, such as the compass and partly also the pedometer – because the maps app would work, for example errors on the iPhone 6s running iOS 9. According to AppleInsider, the developers of the App Sky Guide are already working to correct the problem by updating the application.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to the same sensors for gyroscope and pedometer use as the previous iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In contrast to the latter, a new version of the M9-motion coprocessor is installed in the current smartphone, which is now embedded in the A9 chipset. Let’s hope that the interaction between the operating system and sensors can be improved by an iOS update.
