iOS 13 Gyroscope

Post by Hopki » Wed Oct 16, 2019 11:31 am

Hi,
Since iOS 13 the way you activate the Gyroscop on Apple devices has changed.
The site has to be secure for phones, but not for Head-Mounted Displays such as the Oculus Quest/Go.
When you first visit a website you will be asked to allow the website to use your device's gyro by means of a popup dialogue box.
Once you allow, every time you visit the site the gyro will work with no need to go through this process again.
However, if you select Cancel, the gyro will not function and you will not be asked again.
If you do want to use the gyro then you need to go to your phone's Settings and select: Settings => Safari => Clear History and Website Data.
When you visit the website again you will see the popup dialogue box, select Allow.

Please see the attached video and project file.
Note in the video I am using Pano2VR 6.1 and the built-in web server and using the secure link (ssl)

This is correct as on 16th Oct 2019

Regards,
Hopki
