Mobile Safari on iPhone iOS 4.2 Can Access Gyro

Mobile Safari on the iPhone 4 and latest gen iPod touch has access to the gyroscope it has been revealed. This ability comes from the latest version of iOS which is currently iOS 4.2.1.

What this does is lets the browser be controlled by the Gyroscope built in to the latest iOS devices. An example can be found at the URL… .

As it requires no special changes to be made to the phone, you simply load up that URL above in your iPhone, hold the phone upright and when the gyro is activated, you can then rotate the phone and look around the picture.

By mixing a full 360 degree panoramic image with the Gyro, it allows you to easily look around the picture without the need to scroll around it with your finger.
