  1. Same problem with iOS 11.1.1 and Real Racing 3. Game starts out ok, but slowly the iPad tilt must increase to stop car veering left. Did the reset… no change.

  2. Same prob. Hard restart temporarily fixes the issue but it always comes back after iPad is locked. I’ve also noticed my gyro is incorrect on real racing 3. I have to hold the iPad crooked in order to steer my car straight. Recalibration does nothing to fix this…

  3. Elizabeth your post is very informative. I have the iPad Air 2 and the screen all of a sudden stopped rotating. I have done software updates to the new iOS and the screen worked fine until 3 hours ago. Can u please help?
