Fix iPhone Measure App Not Working, Crashing (iOS 17.4.1)

iPhone Measure App is a great tool to measure objects with the iPhone, but sometimes it crashes and won't work as expected, fix it.

To use measure apps apple didn’t declare any weather conditions but sometimes users facing issues like this. Here is Jay and I am sharing pro tips that help to measure distance and find the Object correctly and easily. In the future, Apple will add new features and options in AR-based app.

So, let’s get started and Enjoy new Measure apps in the latest iOS running iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch Devices.

Measure app is free; It can be deleted from iPhone and Re-download from the app store for free if your iOS is updated with the latest version.

This technique works for the problems below,

  • Is your iPhone measure app Crashing
  • iPhone Measure app hanging and Freezing
  • Measure app missing or unable to Re-download after delete
  • Measure app is not detecting the object and set starting point.
  • A first point not set to the measurement start

  • Update iOS to your iPhone (My Personal experience is, First latest iOS version’s measure app getting hot too fast compare to recent test)
  • Close other apps and Background app refresh
  • Also Force close Measure app while not in use, You could do that in the case of Lagging, Freezing and Crashing while in use.
  • Don’t Waste time to measure object, be an expert.

Measure app not working in the Dark room or Low light

Darkroom or low light is not an issue, Keep the light at least the object will see you with your eyes.

Now, Take away your iPhone close to the object area so iPhone’s Lens can find the object and gives a starting point.

Sometime Measure apps don’t focus and identifying object in sunlight.

Keep your iPhone’s camera lens angle on the opposite side of the sunlight rays.
