    I notice today my apple compass app was no longer working. I don't remember the last time I used it. I'm currently using 12.1.2 software. At the bottom of the screen shows my locations and elevations but the dial is stuck on north and will not move when turning the phone. I have turned the phone off and on and even did a hard reset.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Make sure "Compass Calibration" is turned on in Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services.

    Glad to hear. By the way, I’d not heard of this problem before. A web search turned up the answer...on MacRumors forums!
