Position of gyro and iPhone during calibration? Answered

I have a gyro and using an app on the iPhone (tilt meter).  My question may be basic. But does the gyro sit ontop of the phone, while the phone is standing up (see attached) or is the iPhone laying flat (display up) while the gyro is ontop of the phone?

no. Let me clear it up. I'm not referring the the gyro on the phone. I have a gyro chip that I will put in a robot. I apologize if I was not clear.

Why does the gyro need to be on the phone?

There is nothing to calibrate. Place the sensor on a flat surface in whatever orientation you will have it in the robot and treat the numbers coming from the sensor as the level starting point.

Go to the i fix it web site and look for the iPhone teardown videos. They will point out where the sensor is at in the phone.
