Since we got the Pokémon Go Plus BlueTooth accessory, we’ve been having a few issues running the accessory while the iPhone was in standby.  The Pokémon Go app would either crash during standby or randomly disconnect from the phone, making a major selling point of Pokémon Go Plus moot. We predicted this was most likely a minor bug that could have been brought on in iOS 11, and would be fixed in an update.

Yesterday, Niantic released an update for the iPhone version of Pokémon Go, and we wanted to finally test how well the app runs with the Pokémon Go Plus accessory while in standby.  So we pulled out an old camera and decided to film a walk to see if there is any difference in how Pokémon Go will measure distance if you use the Plus while your phone is in standby. Our results will surprise you!
