The Compass application is one of many factory installed applications that people ignore on their iPhone. People don't really need a compass to figure out where they are. They simply using Google Maps or Apple Maps.
I thought I check out to see if there are any changes to the Compass application from previous iPhone models.
iPhone 5s, iPhone 6s Plus and the iPhone XS Max in the same spot
The Compass functionality hasn't changed much between the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6s Plus, and the iPhone XS Max. The big change has been in the software - not much changed with the hardware.
I did notice that the latitude and longitude is different between the iPhone5s and the other models. (42°20'35" N 71°5'1"W) vs (42°20'50" N 71°4'53" W). The iPhone 6s Plus and Max is closer to the actual location to where I was testing.
