Cycloramic, the app that takes hands-free 360-degree video by using the iPhone’s built-in vibration motors to spin the device, is today arriving for iPhone 6. But with the iPhone 6’s new rounded design (opposed to the flat edges of the iPhone 5 and 5S) the company also had to figure out a way to get it to stand upright on its own.  For that it recommends using the iPhone’s power adaptor that Apple includes in the box, as demoed in the video above released earlier today by the developers.

With the iPhone 6’s rounded edges, it seemed that there was little hope for Cycloramic. However after some trial and error, we realized that Apple had included the solution for us right inside the box.

The app was first released in 2012 and gained attention as the first to use the device’s vibrations for hands-free video and panorama capabilities. It again shot to the top of the App Store charts earlier this year after appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank TV show and receiving a $500k investment.

The new iPhone 6 app is a separate download from the version for iPhone 5/5s and costs $1.99.
