I’ve had a strange issue after upgrading to IOS 12. It all went smoothly, no problems I could see, and then I checked the compass utility. Turns out it’s 180 degrees off. Has anyone else seen this problem or have I just done something dumb?
When and How to Upgrade to iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12, and macOS 10.14 Mojave
It’s working OK for me. iPhone 8, iOS 12.
Anyone know if it’s magnetic or GPS?
Works for me - and I live Down Under (Sydney)!
There is a setting for True North that I have turned off. It made no difference when I turned it on.
I am pretty sure it is GPS-based but it is remarkably fast compared with the early iPhones. I suspect it is always working in the background.
Mine would do that occasionally. If I was indoors all I needed to do was get near a window for a few seconds so it could receive the GPS signals, then all was oriented properly…
