iPhone Measure app missing 

Compatibility of measure app was expected to be from iphone 5 but the Measure app is missing from iPhone 6. As communicated iOS 12, this app will work from iPhone 5, but when searched from iphone  on app store, it says, 'This app requires specific features not available on this device”.
This app needs augmented reality features and device supporting AR can install measure app. The iphone 6s is with AR 2.0 support device is as same as AR 1.0, which means any devices using A9 CPU and above can use the AR function and should have measure app working fine in iOS 12.

Not all iPhone seems to be affected from this issue but many of iPhone 6 devices are not showing up with Measure App.
The error message “this app requires specific features not available on this device” is generally shown if the device does not support the app or the application is not available in the region/country specific but not sure what went wrong in this case.
