What is iPhone motion and orientation?

As of iOS 12.1, Apple added 'Motion & Orientation Access' setting for Safari. By default, the setting is turned off & prevents access to device's accelerometer and gyroscope, which means that ThingLink and other online VR/AR items may have troubles working on your device.

Then, how do you turn on motion and orientation?

To grant access: Go to Settings, scroll down and tap on the Safari section: Scroll down and there will be an entry “Motion & Orientation Access”: Enable it so it's on: If you go back you should now see the VR icon.

Subsequently, question is, how do I allow Safari to use motion controls? One of Safari's last updates prevents motion and orientation access unless the feature is MANUALLY enabled (you only need to do this once, though). The feature can be found on your iPhone or iPad, in Settings > Safari > Privacy & Security > Motion & Orientation Access, and it's disabled by default.

Similarly, it is asked, how do you turn on motion and orientation on iOS 13?

Go to Settings, scroll down and tap on the Safari section:

  1. Scroll down and there will be an entry “Motion & Orientation Access”:
  2. Enable it so it's on:
  3. If you go back you should be able to view your 360 by moving the device.
