But it can deter cat fishers who lie about their size.

The app is available on devices as old as the iPhone SE or iPhone 6S, provided they are updated to iOS 12 or newer software.

Using iOS 14 or above software can enable iPhone to measure people’s height just by pointing the camera at them.

The app should already be on your iPhone among the Clock, Calculator, and Compass apps.
