    there still seems to be issues with 5s sensor ,sometimes complex technologies creates more complexities to life.
    I think it will be sorted out

    Actually wasn't so much an apple map issue. Rather driver not getting nose out of phone screen and looking out the window. Driver was fortunate wasn't traveling near grand canyon. Might have done a Thelma and Louise !

    Just called the apple store myself. On a flat surface (used a level to check) I'm off 5-6 degrees. Vertically and horizontally it's off 3-4. One thing that made me notice this, is when I started using a wallpaper that has a center image (small), set it so it's in the center (when applying wallpaper), then go to the home screen and see how it stays off center respective to the icons etc.. That's annoying. The background motion is causing to happen. I guess I can try and replace it, ad hopefully get lucky. I don't want to wait past the 14 days otherwise they'll hand me a refurb.

    Update: just got mine replaced and problem solved. The new one came with 7.0.2 out of the box..

    Mine is off 2-3 degrees as well. Wondering how long it will take for Apple to provide an explanation.

    Mine is off as well. Really hope this can be resolved with software, and not require the whole device to be replaced.

    Went to the apple store several times this week in Albuquerque. I literally tried just about every iPhone 5s and a few 5c models they had on display to see if their sensors were off. Every single phone I tested was off. Tested flat, all were off anywhere from -2 to -5 degrees. Tested on the side(SIM card slot), all were off from -3 to -5 degrees. Tested standing right side up(charge port on the bottom), all were off from -1 to -3 degrees. Only one apple genius out of 3 that I talked to who actually owned the 5s himself was aware that it is an issue. And yes I did feel awkward going from table to table testing the sensor problem, but anything for science! Lol
