Compass glitches

After last weeks upgrade to iOS 10, and the subsequent 10.0.2 I’ve noticed some glitches I didn’t notice before in the compass, and in Find My iPhone.

I’m quite sure the compass problems are rather new, but I can’t be 100% certain they came with iOS 10, and Find My iPhone I use so rarely that I don’t know when it worked last, but it has.

However, what I’m seeing just now is this, for 3 iPhones laying right beside each other on the same dinner table.

Which is annoying, if I were to try to actually use the feature to locate the person using the phone. But even more annoying is the compass glitches, which I’m not sure are related to the above, but it certainly feels like they’re in the same area.

I’ve cropped the coordinates since they’re not necessary to show, and they are also identical, which is interesting given that Find My iPhone does not seem to think so.

But the real problem is the left phone, which seems to be somewhat confused in regards to the direction of North.
