Rumor: Next iPhone To Have Magnetometer

Posted May 8, 2009

A source for Boy Genius Report sent over a couple of images from the next iPhone.  The next iPhone feature appears to have a compass as one of the options in one of the debugging menus.  The source of Boy Genius report stated that this is obvious indication that the next iPhone will have a built-in magnetometer.  A compass would be extremely useful when using the GPS built in to the iPhone.
