The supported models enable the users to measure their height from the floor to the top of their head, hair, or hat. The app even allows people to measure the height of the person who is seated in a chair.

You can measure your height using the height measurement displaying at the top of your head. In this case, you will get to see a Take Picture button located near the lower-right corner. This button helps to take a picture for the measurement. 

Whereas, the green Camera In Use indicator can be found at the top right. Ensure that you are keeping your iphone in such a way so that you can measure the person's height from head to toe. Then, you can see a line appearing at the top of the head of the person along with the measurement of height that will be displayed below the line.

In this way, the mobile or device can have a reference frame for the object that you are measuring.

  • You need to move the device in such a way so that the dot appears on the measurement's beginning point. Next, you need to hit the Add button. 
  • Now, your job is to move the device slowly until you see the dot appearing on the measurement's last point. Hit the Add button again.
  • As soon as you complete the task of taking measurements, it is possible to adjust the starting and ending points.
  • In this case, your task is to touch one point first and then hold & drag it to the place you want. Remember that the measurement will be changed when you move the point.

How can you save measurements?

Once you see the measurement, your job is to tap that number to check this in inches and centimetres. Then, you should click on Copy. After that, the value will be sent to the clipboard so that the user can paste it into another app. Now, you should click on the option named Clear.

If necessary, take a photo that will show the object and the measurement of it. Hence, your task only is to hit the Shutter button. After that, you can see the image in the screen's lower-left corner. Now, you have to click on it so that you can perform the edits with Markup. Otherwise, you can swipe it left so that it is possible to save this to the Photos app.

How to take multiple measurements:

Once completing the first measurement, you should move the device so that the dot comes near the object or in another place. Next, to begin the measurement for the second time, you have to hit the Add button. Now, your task is to move the device so that the dot can be placed along the existing measurement.

Then, you need to hit the Add button again, and thereafter, you can get to see the second measurement. You can perform the steps again to take multiple measurements. However, you can remove the current measurement by hitting the Undo button. If you want, then you need to click on the Clear option to begin the process again.

Measure a rectangle:

Suppose the device detects that the measuring object is square or rectangular. Then, you will get to see a measurement box around the object. Thereafter, you should hit the Add button. Then, you can see the measurement of the object (its length and width). After moving the device a little bit, you can see the object's calculated area.

When you see the measurement, click on the calculated area number. Thus, you can see the diagonal length and the area ( displayed in square metres or square inches)

But remember that you can use the Measure app with iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation), iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation), iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation), iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation), iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max devices.
