Calculator Tip

Welcome to the first edition of Tips for iOS!! I can’t tell you how excited I am to be sharing this content with you. These weekly tips are meant to help you start using your iPhone for more than just phone calls and text messaging.

In this episode I show you a little known calculator trick that should make using the calculator more fun and productive.


I hope you enjoyed the video. I have one more tip to make calculations quick and easy. There’s a way to do basic math without ever opening up the calculator app. The solution? Spotlight. To access spotlight. Swipe down from the middle of your home screen. Type in whatever calculation you need and there you have it.


Hopefully you found this tip useful and I’ll be back next week with another tip.
