One of the great features that we’ve got to see in iOS 12 is an augmented reality app called Measure. This app has been designed by Apple to make it easier for you to measure a range of the real-world objects using 3D spatial detection techniques. This app works pretty well in pinch but doesn’t always guarantee to be 100 percent accurate. Thus, it is still beta software, which means that more tweaks to the Measure app are likely to come before the official launch of iOS 12 in September. If you want to learn how you can use the new augmented reality Measure app on your iOS 12, follow the simple steps given below:
- Launch the Measure app on your iOS device.
- Then you have to follow the on-screen instructions and move the iPhone around the place you are at (generally room). Doing so will make you see the dimensions of various objects.
- Once it’s set and adjusted. You will find it denoted by a white dot in a circle. Now you are ready to take measurements.
- For doing so, line up the white dot with the corner of an object, then press the plus (+) button. This will create an anchor point.
- Then you’ll need to press the plus (+) button again in order to prepare the final measurement of the line.
Note: You can continue using this method to get the full dimensions of the various objects in your room or anywhere you want. You will be able to do this with the ability to set multiple anchor points if desired.
The Measure app includes Haptic feedback, so you are going to feel small haptic taps every time you set an anchor point, for physical feedback.
- Whenever the app detects an obvious stopping point for a measurement, it also includes Haptic taps, such as the end of a wall.
- If you want to clear your anchor points and start over whenever you like, first of all, you need to click on the Clear button.
- Once all of your measurements are set in their place, you will have to click the white button for taking a photo that tends to display all of the measurements placed on top on the object you are measuring.
Note: You can also click on the arrow of one of the measurements for getting a pop up with current readings that can be applied and pasted into another app like or notes messenger.
