Apple has developed its own augmented reality-enabled measuring app called "Measure." The iOS app uses ARKit 2 to measure objects, get automatic measurements of things like photos and tables, and more.
Numerous measurement apps have been available on the iOS App Store since Apple launched ARKit last year, and now Apple will have its own alternative on the App Store for users. In a demo during WWDC, Craig Federighi showed off easily measuring a box with Measure, and then snapped a quick photo which gave him precise measurements of an object.
Measure is a new app in iOS 12, which uses AR to quickly gauge the size of real-world objects similar to a tape measure. The new app automatically provides the dimensions of objects like picture frames, posters and signs, and can also show diagonal measurements, compute area and allow users to take a photo and share it with accurate dimensions right from their iPhone or iPad.
There's no word about a launch date for Measure, though it will likely be released alongside iOS 12 this fall.

Just because Apple didn't create every single possible app before releasing the iPhone doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed to continue making new apps.
