You don’t need a tape measure for this – the smartphone takes over the task. All you need is a Roulette app, a camera and a LiDAR scanner. The last module is a proprietary feature of the latest flagship Apple smartphones, but a little earlier it appeared in the iPad Pro 2020 model. This module improves the functionality of augmented reality, and the ability to measure a person’s height with it is fun, but highly demanded. Moreover, you can even measure the height of a person sitting in a chair or chair.

How to measure a person’s height in iOS (iPadOS)?
1. Launch the Roulette app on the iPhone.
2. Point the smartphone camera at the person so that he is completely in the frame – from the tips of his feet to the top of his head. Literally right there on top, above the hair or headdress, a line will appear indicating the measured height.
3. You can take a picture showing the height of the subject by tapping the standard shutter button to the right of the central “+” button.
4. To save the photo, tap the photo in the lower left corner, then tap. “Done” and choose where to save the snapshot: “Save to Files” or “Save to Photo”… Now you can find a snapshot of a person with their measured height where you saved it. You can share this photo at any time.
And if you need to take a similar measurement again, then briefly turn the iPhone to the side to reset the measurements. Note that both imperial and metric units can be selected from the menu Settings → Measurements → Units of measurement…
