You probably already know that Apple announced some new iPhones last week.
But there's also a brand-new update to iOS out now as well, and it includes an app that's been a long time coming...the Measure app.
If you're anything like me, you never have a tape measure when you need it. Like, you go to Ikea, and you want to buy a desk or something, but you have no idea how long or tall it is.
Well, with new augmented reality (AR) features, you can now point your phone at an object and use the Measure app to see what size it is.
People are kind of loving it.
And apparently it really works! No more having to carry around a tape measure. Combine it with the level in the Compass app, and you have both tools you need all the time in your house but never seem to have handy.
Of course, people are already predicting how this will change the dick pic game...
...But there are other uses, too.
To use the app, you'll first have to update to iOS 12. If you haven't yet, go into Settings ➡ General ➡ Software Update and download and install iOS 12. After that, the app should appear along with lots of other features.
Point your phone at an object, tap to add some points, and you'll find out a lot of stuff, like how long your dog is. Get to measuring!
