- Many iPhone users thought that the only mode that the iOS calculator has is the standard mode
- A lot of people were surprised when a user accidentally discovered that it has a scientific mode as well.
- All that one needs to do is to turn it sideways, and voila, the longer, symbol-filled scientific mode will come to life
- The most surprising of all was that the scientific version was already introduced in 2008
The normal usage of a calculator in iOS is in portrait mode. This basically allows the user to see the standard mode on the calculator.
However, a user from The Verge shared that the calculator also has a scientific mode. Yes, turning the iPhone on its side will enable the user to use the scientific version.
The revelation came much of a surprise that Twitter user J.R. Carpenter immediately shared it on social media.
"That glimpse of an alternate universe vibe when you turn your iPhone sideways and all of a sudden it's a scientific calculator"
So many functionalities are instantly unlocked. One could now use exponents, memory and parentheses. Those functions that are normally used in high school would simply be available on the iPhone.
What is noticeable on the scientific version is that there is no ticker tape feature, which should have given users the chance to see those operations that were already done.
MacRumors also gave five tips on how one would be able to maximize the calculator.
This allows users to make essential functions like parentheses. Students in high school who deal with Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus will find this feature truly useful.
Apple also gave details on other iOS features that prove useful for everyday use.
Since there is already an iPhone 12, which is by far the best, looking at its predecessor might be worth it.
Apple Company has previously unveiled yet a new low-cost iPhone SE 2020. As a result, it features speculations in this device battle and competes with Samsung. It is the latest model in place announced on 15th April 2020.
Prices for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone Pro Max are now already available. iPhone 11 starts at P47,990 with memory storage of 64GB. Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 Pro has a starting price of P67,990 and the iPhone 11 Pro Max costs P73,990 for the same memory storage.
