From the forums, this week at iSource

 iPhone 5S motion sensor problems

Apple’s iPhone 5S is a great phone, but perfect it is not. While not making headlines on the same scale as antennagate, issues with inaccurate motion sensor readings have been bad enough to inspire their own nickname. Known in some circles as gyrogate, the problem results in gyroscope, compass, and accelerometer data that is off by as much as 5 degrees.

However, it looks as though hardware is to blame for iPhone 5S motion sensor problems, and more importantly, a software fix could help.

Is your iPhone 5S crashing twice as often as your previous iPhone?

Have you noticed your brand new iPhone 5S crashing when running your favorite apps lately? It has been purported that the newest iPhone has been crashing at “much” higher rate than on both the iPhone 5 and the newly released iPhone 5C–up to twice as often. Now while this sounds alarming, the stats show an increase of just 1% of all app launches crashing compared to 2% on the new 5S. Have you had a similar experience? Let us know what your experience has been like

How to: Disable iOS 7 Control Center when using apps

Control Center is one of iOS 7′s best new features. It allows a user to quickly access settings for oft used functions such as Bluetooth, WiFi, music playback, and more by simply swiping up from the bottom of the display. It also can become quite the nuisance when using an app or game that requires full use of screen real estate for touch controls. Here’s what you can do to disable Control Center when using apps.

iPad Event on 10/22–will you be buying a new iPad?

With the impending Apple iPad Event next Tuesday, October 22nd at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, the question comes to mind–will you be buying a new iPad when they are announced next week?

What will your preference be, the 5th generation iPad or the new iPad mini–OR both?
