When using the Measure app on an iPhone 12 Pro or 12 Pro Max to automatically measure a person's height, the result is not recognized or spoken by VoiceOver

VoiceOver Announcements/Feedback


On iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, you can use the Measure app to instantly measure a person’s height from the floor to the top of their head, hair, or hat. (You can even measure the seated height of a person in a chair.)

The resulting measurement is displayed visually on screen but not accessible with VoiceOver.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Ensure that VoiceOver is enabled.
  2. Open the Measure app.
  3. Position iPhone so that the person you want to measure appears on the screen from head to toe.

After a moment, a line is displayed on screen at the top of the person’s head (or hair, or hat), with the height measurement showing just below the line.

This measurement is not spoken by VoiceOver when it appears and it is also not possible to locate and read the measurement by touch.
