Technology makes everything available at your fingertips.

Soon this will include a tape measure, as Apple Inc. will release a virtual version in its next operating system update, an American news channel said Thursday.

In Facebook video uploaded by CNBC Technology, Apple’s Augmented Reality Measure utilizes your phone’s camera to make virtual points and measure the exact distance between them.

AR Measure will be included in the iOS 11 to be released later this year.

The public beta of iOS 11 was made available for download in June.
