On iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 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 a chair.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Position iPhone so that the person you want to measure appears on the screen from head to toe.
  • After a moment, a line appears at the top of the person’s head (or hair, or hat), with the height measurement showing just below the line.
  • To take a photo of the measurement, tap the Take Picture button.
  • To save the photo, tap the screenshot in the lower-left corner, tap Done, then choose Save to Photos or Save to Files.

To take the measurement again, turn the iPhone away for a moment to reset the height.
