iPhone running new iOS 12 Measure app.

A new handy app has been included in iOS 12! It’s called Measure and it actually does what its name says. It helps you measure different surfaces with a decent amount of accuracy. It’s practically Apple’s native app for measuring objects with the help of the iPhone’s or iPad’s camera and the Augmented Reality environment. As soon as AR was introduced, last year, third party developers have started coding apps that allowed virtual measurements with the help of the iOS device.

One year later, Apple has coded its own piece of software and provides measurements with the help of the iPhone and iPad Camera as a stock feature. As soon as you upgrade your smartphone to iOS 12, you will notice the new Measure app on the Home Screen. The app is really easy to use. Just open it, move your iPhone to calibrate, drop a pin and start measuring. You can then copy your measurements and send them to a contact, or even capture the frame and send the image to your friends.
