Did You Know That iOS Has ‘Scientific Mode’ in Calculator?
The Calculator application in the iOS operating system has a feature that many users do not know about. This feature allows the users to switch the application into scientific mode. To use the stock Calculator with scientific mode, all you have to do is turn your phone sideways.
The iOS operating system, developed by the US-based technology giant Apple, is used by millions of people today. The operating system used in the smart phones developed by the company also gains the appreciation of many users in its features. We will talk about a feature that has been on iOS since 2008 but that most users are unaware of.
As with every operating system, the iOS operating system has a built-in Calculator application. This application can do all of the basic calculations. However, iPhone users who needed more were turning to the “scientific mode” supported calculator applications in the App Store. Actually, there is no need for such a thing. Because the built-in Calculator in iOS already has scientific mode support.
If you want to use the app called Calculator on iOS in scientific mode, all you have to do is turn your phone sideways. After doing this, you can do advanced math operations such as exponential numbers, trigonometry, logarithms and radicals on your iPhone. This relatively eliminates the need for a third-party application announced from the App Store.
This feature, unknown to many iPhone owners, published in 2008. The feature, available since iOS 2.0, comes preinstalled on iPhones. In fact, Apple also shows the presence of this feature in the App Store store of this application. However, the fact that the Calculator application is already on the phone seems to have caused the scientific mode feature to go unnoticed.
