Under Privacy > System Services, I can see that Compass Calibration is constantly purple, should that be disabled ? Is it causing unnecessary battery drain
Oh so you don’t use the health and fitness features of the phone and Apple Watch, I think that for proper performance of these features I should leave compass calibration and motion calibration enabled but then again I’m not certain if these settings affect these things which is why I created this threadI have that disabled as well, but I also don't use the step counter or those type of features.
how come that the compass orientation in google maps literally stops working when “compass calibration” is turned off then?I filed a bug report on this a few years ago. On the iPhone 6s or later, compass calibration relies on the M9 chip (or later) which is always-on. They said that since the hardware responsible is always on, it will not cause any additional battery drain.
Ha thanks for that hint- I was always wondering why stupid google maps couldn’t show me where I was looking at - because I had that turned off.how come that the compass orientation in google maps literally stops working when “compass calibration” is turned off then?
