Who knew you can do that?
The stock calculator app found on iOS is pretty straightforward, enter the numbers and do all the calculations that you want. But if you notice, if you mistakenly entered a number you would normally press the ‘C’ button and start all over again.
But a user has recently reported that simply swiping left on the top part of the calculator app instantly deletes each number. It’s a trick that has had iPhone users freaking out since mostly no one knew that you could simply swipe to erase a number.

Apple never mentioned it as a feature – I mean, it’s not really a big feature – but finding out certain functions like these makes you think what other stuff Apple has hidden inside iOS.
Android users of course already have the back button for a while now, but let's save that arugument for another day.
It’s a simple function, but definitely something that would save you more time when using the iPhone’s calculator app.
