    Excellent!!:):) iPhone 7 Plus has an A10 chip, and your iPad Air 2 A8, so maybe they are fixed but older devices with A7 maybe still have the problem.

    Sorry it’s taking so long I’m having an issue with iOS in the middle of setting up the phone again.

    6S has A9 chipset and newer GT7600 gfx than iPad Air 2, which is newest I know the problem affects for sure (on 11.1 at least).

    Alright tested it all day on iPhone 5S. Asphalt 8 seems fine. It sometimes didn’t turn easily felt a bit glitchy. Real racing 3 was terrible. It just went left. Did 3 matches on each. And played storm raiders and this other racing game the rest of the day haha

    Thanks M8! Asphalt is strange, even on 11.1 it can seem OK, then something will make it almost unplayable, crashing maybe? Could be you subsconsciously correct by tilting the device, but then making a mistake interrupts the concentration? It's a difficult problem for sure.

    Tested the new release 11.1.1 on an iPad mini 4. The drift problem still was there in RR3.

    However, I found if I killed and restarted RR3 while the iPad was laying flat on a table, and then recalibrated RR3 right away, the game ran fine. No drift. I did a number of laps around Le Mans. No problems. Tried other cars and other tracks. No problems after about 15 minutes of racing.

    But if RR3 restarted without the iPad laying flat while the game booted, the gyro problem returned even if a calibration is done.

    Interesting. I had a go at laying Asphalt on a flat table when starting, it did seem to help a bit, but still gets worse as I play. I do think that if you crash it suddenly gets worse.

    If anyone has Beta 3 it would be good to know if this has been fixed.

    You should just install beta 3 and test it. 11.2 is already miles better than any iOS 11 version so far. If you do be sure to get a backup (iTunes preferably) before-hand and archive it somewhere. Then you can go back to 11.1.1 if you so desire.

    So for sure Gear Club is afected. I can’t steer at all! No steering recognition whatsoever. Tried auto throttle with manual brakes also tried manual throttle and manual brakes tilt steering still recognizes ZERO input. But airplane games seem to work. I’m pissed and confused. It worked yesterday but now today all of a sudden.. it stopped...

    What phone you using? I've been playing Gear Club on a 6S for ages and never had an issue as previously posted in this thread. Not played today but was fine yesterday.

    Reporting on Real Racing 3 forums that 11.2 Beta 3 fixes the issue.

    I feel you pain with the issue, have you come across a solution? I've tried switching back & forth between the different steering modes, but nothing seems to help.

    I’m using an iPhone 7+ my gyro works on my airplane game and other racing games. But it suddenly stopped for Gear.Club! I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled too. Nothing works. I’m upset as I’m so invested time wise into the game.

    Presumably its going to be fixed in an upcoming iOS software update so no reason to get that annoyed about it. Also if you've got it set up correctly then you shouldnt lose anything if you do delete and reinstall.
