Yes GPS and gyroscopes were made available at a enterprise level in the 70's and 80's, but the iPhone brought these into a mass availability.

Gyros were also available throughout the 1990's, 3000$ could get you a piece of sh*t with 5 degrees of precision an 2 degrees of drift per minute.

Then Nintendo came along in 2004 to one american accelerometer company and said: "I know you sell 100 of these a year at 3000$. We want you to make a new model that sells for 2$ and we'll buy 50 million of them".

Once that ridiculous tech/money barrier was broken, then all the other manufacturers picked up 2$ gyros (why wouldn't they?).
