Measuring your height with an iPhone is easy and fun! Follow this simple step-by-step guide to learn how.
Accurately measuring your height can be useful for a variety of reasons: tracking your growth, calculating your BMI (Body Mass Index), or determining your ideal clothing size. While you could use a traditional measuring tape or yardstick, you might find it easier and more convenient to use your iPhone to measure your height. This step-by-step guide will show you how.
Step 1: Download an app
The first step is to download a suitable measuring app to your iPhone. There are several free apps available on the App Store, such as Ruler, iMeasure, and Measure. We recommend Measure, as it is the most accurate and user-friendly option.
Step 2: Prepare the area
Before beginning the measuring process, make sure the area you are in is well-lit and clutter-free. It is important to have a flat, level surface to measure on. If you are measuring outdoors, make sure there is no wind or other environmental factors that could affect the accuracy of your measurements.
Step 3: Place your iPhone on the ground
Once the area is prepared, place your iPhone on the ground in front of you. Make sure the phone is in a straight line with your body. It should be positioned as close to you as possible, while still allowing you to move freely.
Step 4: Calibrate the app
Open the measuring app and select the “Calibrate” option. You will need to enter the height of the bottom of the iPhone (this can be found in the phone’s settings). Once you have entered the height, the app will be calibrated and ready to use.
Step 5: Measure your height
Now that the app is calibrated, stand up straight and place your feet directly beneath the iPhone. Make sure your feet are parallel to the phone, and that your feet are firmly planted on the ground. Then, select the “Measure” option on the app. The app will display your height in either feet and inches or meters and centimeters, depending on the settings you have chosen.
Step 6: Record your results
Once you have completed the measurement, you should record the results in a journal or spreadsheet. This way, you can easily track your growth over time.
Measuring your height with an iPhone is a fast and easy way to track your growth. With a few simple steps, you can accurately measure your height and record your results for future reference.
