The new iPhone 2009 will most likely have a compass. AppleInsider has published a report with yet another puzzle piece that completes the picture to I would say almost 100% certainty that the new iPhone will have a compass.
A screenshot of the iPhone 3.0 beta appeared early May showing a compass option. On Tuesday a new set of specifications of the new iPhone 2009 surfaced with again mentioning the compass. That rumor actually claims that Apple will do some fun stuff with the compass involving Google maps to identify photo and inform about photo locations.
Now the AppleInsider report identified the maker of the magnetometer chip. Japanese Asahi Kasei's azimuth sensor No. AK8973 is supposed to be used in the upcoming iPhone 2009.
The WWDC 2009 draws closer and the waiting for a new iPhone will be hopefully by June 8th.
