Apple is showing a new Measure AR app

Guess what? You can already do so thanks to a variety of third-party apps, many of which debuted last year, when Apple unveiled its ARKit software (now with multiuser support) .

For example, there is Laan Labs Air Measure (formerly AR Measure), which works much like iOS Measure. You simply aim your camera at a starting point, tap a button, move it to the end point, and then tap again. As you move, a virtual tape measure appears.

Air Measure can also measure the vertical height of an object, generate a 3D cube around an object (for example, to determine the size of the shipping box), and help you create an accurate 2D floor plan. It is a free app.

Conclusion: You do not have to wait for iOS 12 to add an augmented reality tape measure to your iPhone. However, you need an iPhone that is ARKit-compatible, that is, an iPhone 6S or later.

Search for "AR measure" in the App Store and you will find many others whose prices range from free to about 10 €.

This is an evolving story. See CNET's WWDC live blog here.
