Altitude is the vertical distance measured between a point and a data (a reference surface) that is generally the average sea level. With current technologies, we can easily know how high we are.
On iPhone to get this information, you don’t need to install any third-party applications. Know where to consult.
It is true that there are more complete applications to know how high we are. Tools like Google Earth allow us to know the altitude, latitude and longitude of a particular place, among other things … but iOS has an application for that.
How to know the altitude with your iPhone?
To get this information, on iPhone simply open the application Compass. You must first allow this application to use the location. This configuration is done in Settings> Privacy> Share location> Compass (when used).
Then simply open the application and the information you are looking for is at the end as shown in the following image. Obviously, as a compass, it is also possible to obtain the coordinates of your location.
This is a small tip for those who like to know this type of information. In addition to this tool, also remember that with iPhone you can make measurements.
With the The Tape Measure application, which uses augmented reality technology to convert the iOS device into a tape measure, can quickly assess the size of the object, automatically detect the dimensions of rectangular objects and save a measurement photo for later use.
