I seem to recall reading about either a new chip, feature, or API in either the iPhone 5, or possibly just in iOS 6 or 7 that added yet another way of measuring motion similar to the built in gyroscope and accelerometer. I think it was grouped with those two features, but making it even better. Can someone please help me remember the name of this technology? Thanks!

iPhone 4 added the gyroscope; previously they only had accelerometers.

Specifically I think they use a vibrating structure gyroscope, implemented with MEMS technology.
