    For me it's still not accurate. When laying it on a flat surface it shows 2 degrees. Thought the change log said it was fixed.

    Most likely they only adjusted the variances. They probably can't truly fix the calibration except at the factory. So it should be more accurate now but it will probably never be perfect.

    My compass now doesn't move at all (while calibrating). The ball just doesn't move.

    It's now fixed. Literally.

    Mine now agrees with both my hiking compass and my spirit level.

    Showing the same reading before the update. Oh well, don't use that feature anyway

    Mine was off by 4 on the back and 3 on the sides. After 7.0.3, it's perfect on the sides and 0 to 1 on the back (which means it's probably correct).

    Very glad it was able to be fixed by software!

    Compass also calibrates a lot faster now.

    The phone agrees with 2 other compasses and my old iPhone 5 now, when before it was 50-60 degrees off

    It also agrees with my digital leveler, and would say -4 on flat surfaces


    Issue is fixed, maybe you're just on a truly not level surface.

    Mine was -2° off, now it's 0°. And my compass also calibrates much faster.

    Just because you think a surface is level doesn't mean it is. Verify with an external level before testing the phone and make sure they match.

    Guess I'll run some more test. Was on a desk so I assumed it was completely flat.

    Mine seems fixed. I'll double check it with a digital smart level tonight.

    Turn off "True North" - see if that fixes it
