To calibrate or not?

Hi, I normally fly my Spark with my Iphone 6, but today I thought I'd use my iPad Air 2 - because of the bigger screen.
Anyway, just as soon it connected I got a calibrate IMU message. I swapped screen and went back to my iPhone, and no problems - the bird flew normally.
I switched to my iPad again and, again, it requested an IMU calibration. I don't understand it - could someone explain this to me and/or has it happened to any one else?

Thanks and regards

Agree with RR. I run my Spark through my iPad6 for the better screen size and I calibrated after a fly away-both IMU and compass. All good.

I calibrate before every flight it literally takes a couple minutes and may be the difference between a save flight and something going wrong so I do it as a pre flight precaution
