New iPhone Magnetometer, Built-in Compass confirmed

Boy Genius Report has obtained two screens allegedly from an unreleased iPhone OS. It looks like those magnetometer (digital compass) features of the new iPhone hardware we saw earlier are legit-er. This feature has been used already by some Nokia phones , and the inclusion of this feature into the new iPhone will undoubtedly raise its overall value making it even more appealing for those who love to rough it out in the great outdoors. This brings up some interesting possibilites when combined with video and still pictures. The GPS metatags combined with direction can build 3D landscapes
We will see in the the final product to be released of 3.0 firmware. Source...
