Apple Disables iOS Safari Gyro Functionality Needed for VR / WebXR Navigation 6 months ago

Apple has released an update which disables real-time accelerometer and gyroscope data from iOS devices.

With the new “Motion & Orientation Access” setting toggled off by default, SeekBeak (or ANY website for that matter) can’t read any of the phones motion data, and therefore won’t work in things like your Google Cardboard or other flashy WebVR devices.

This new setting must be turned on manually to use features that rely on motion data from the gyroscope and accelerometer in the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Don’t panic though, we’ve created a small video below showing you exactly how to turn this feature back on!
