It can be used for more than just photography needs
As it turned out, the iPhone 12 Pro lidar can be used not only to improve photography (especially in low light conditions), but also for other purposes. For example, it can be used to measure the height of people.
An unusual application has been found for the iPhone 12 Pro lidar
Parents will surely appreciate this opportunity – to assess the growth of children, they will not need to use special tools in the form of a metric tape, tape measure or nicks on the door trim – just launch the Measure app in iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max. The smartphone will automatically determine the height of a person from floor to crown and indicate this in the picture, which can then be saved or shared with friends or family. It should be noted that the function works on all Apple devices with lidar in the camera design, that is, not only in the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, but also in the iPad Pro 2020.
