Last week Apple filed for a trademark covering their AR 'Measure' app icon in the U.S. and Hong Kong, China. Earlier in the month Apple filed for a major update to their various versions of 'CarPlay' in Hong Kong and the figurative version being filed in Hong Kong and Europe.

Apple's Trademark Application in-part for 'Measure' App Icon
Below is Apple's 'Measure' app Icon that they're trying to protect with this trademark application. The 'Measure' icon is juxtaposed to a photo I took showing a single width measurement of a rattan storage cabinet in my condo. On the go and in a pinch I'd certainly use the app, but I'm old school and still prefer a tape measure.
