“There’s finally a fix for Apple’s faulty iPhone 5S sensors — provided by a tiny company that develops technology for iPhone developers who need accurate spatial orientation and movement data,” John Koetsier reports for VentureBeat.
“The company is RealityCap, which makes software that helps iOS apps sense their surroundings in three dimensions by using the iPhone’s camera, sensor, and inertial data,” Koetsier reports. “Since it clearly needs accurate data to work, the company carefully investigated the iPhone 5S sensor problems which came to light in early October, finding that Apple’s newest flagship smartphone reported errors of as much as 5-6 degrees.”
Koetsier reports, “Today, RealityCap released a fix for iOS apps that will enable them to adjust their readings for the incorrect iPhone 5S sensor data — essentially fixing hardware in software.”
