With the iPhone 6 Apple will work in the fall in all probability greatly in the expansion of the barometer sensors contained in his smartphone.
While there has already been in the past, some rumors concerning detection of health and fitness levels, especially in connection with the new Health app, also sensors in the device could find, collect information from the environment. then a very concrete Note colleagues from 9to5Mac have now discovered in the depths of iOS. 8 So the iPhone 6 could have an integrated barometer, which measures the air pressure of the atmosphere and thus provides evidence of the current and future weather. One of the functions used in this case goes by the name "isRelativeAltitudeAvailable" and tells the operating system obdas device supports the detection of these values. In the case of the iPhone 5s a "No" is returned here at.
However, the colleagues also place on record that there is another use for the Altitude value. So Apple could develop its integrated (and never used by me) Compass app and give the user the possibility information about its location above sea level.
