If you make a mistake when entering a number, simply swipe your finger left or right across the display at the top and the last entered digit will be deleted.

“I was today years old when I found out if you key a wrong number on the iPhone calculator, slide the numbers to the right (or left) to delete it,” Jackie said.

“It’s been there the whole time... who knew!?”
