Apple has introduced a new LiDAR scanner in its latest iPhone 12 Pro devices. The new scanner allows your iPhone to feel the world around better. The same feature is already available in the iPad Pro devices but now it’s getting into something with a smaller footprint which means the users would be able to carry the functionality everywhere in their pocket.
Apparently, the new LiDAR Scanner allows the iPhone 12 Pro models to accurately measure your height. In fact, it can even give you your seated height measurements when you sit down as well.
According to Apple, the Measure app is something you’d like to use as it calculates the measurements instantly and puts them on-screen.
“On iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, you can use the Measure app to instantly measure a person’s height from the floor to the top of their head, hair, or hat. (You can even measure the seated height of a person in chair.)”
It’s pretty simple to use this new feature. Just launch the Measure app on your iPhone and ensure that the person who height has to be measured is completely visible head-to-toe. It takes just a moment for your iPhone to draw a line showing their height. It is also possible to snap the measurement simply by tapping on the shutter button within the app. The photo you capture here will be saved to your iPhone’s Photos app so that you could use it anytime later.
Besides the iPhone 12 Pro, this new feature will also be there on the bigger iPhone 12 Pro Max when the device goes on sale later on November 13. So, whichever of the two iPhones you have, make use of this new feature and, hopefully, you’ll like it.
