Use iPhone as IMU in ROS

For a project, I needed IMU data in ROS but didn’t have any sensors. So I used my iPhone by downloading the SensorLog App and writing a ROS node to receive real-time data and republish it on a topic.

The only thing is that the App I used costs $4.99, but if you find a free one and modify my code write it in the comments.
