Calculator Hack

Ever wondered how to erase a number on your iPhone's calculator? An answer is finally here!

The unsung hero of the Apple app world is by a long stretch, the calculator.

Like U2's thirteenth album, none of us chose for it to be on our phones, but it's there and to be honest we'd probably all miss it if it wasn't!

But there's always been an annoyance when using the calculator app, and thats the lack of a backspace function.

Think about it - how many times have you typed a sum in wrong, and rather than being able to delete one number, you've had to delete them all and start again?

It's soooo annoying.

But apparently this WHOLE time we've been missing out on a hidden way to press backspace and now the game changing hack has been revealed on Twitter.

If this tiny hack has been hiding from us all this time, who knows what else our iPhones can do without us even realising?!
