How to Find the iPhone Level Tool

Wondering, "Where is the level on my iPhone," Look no further than the Measure app. It has it right there ready for you to use. However, the Measure tool is hidden in the Utilities folder, which is automatically created. Here's how to find the iPhone level tool.

  1. Open your Utilities folder on your Home screen.

  2. Tap Measure.

You can also search for Measure in your App Library.

How to Use the Level on Your iPhone or iPad

Once you've opened the Measure app, all you need to do is:

  1. Tap on Level at the bottom of your screen.

  2. Hold your device on the surface you'd like to check for level.
  3. When your device, and therefore the surface you're testing, is level you'll see a green screen and 0º.

  4. If the surface you're checking isn't level, the screen will be black, and you'll see how many degrees plus or minus it's off from level.

Now you can easily straighten picture frames or anything else your heart desires!
