So while getting your math right, you mistakenly enter a few numbers and are searching for that handy undo button to quickly erase those unwanted digits. Here is how it’s done the easiest way!
How to Undo Digit(s) or Number(s) in Calculator App on iPhone
- This gesture supports only numerical keypad (0-9) as well as decimal point button.
- You can’t use this gesture if you tap on any of the math operation buttons.
Step #1. Open Calculator app on your iPhone/iPad.
Step #2. Next, enter numbers.
Step #3. Supposing you have mistakenly entered any digit and want to delete it, simply swipe left/right on the black display in order to remove the most recent digit.

Even though there are numerous highly functional and feature-rich third-party calculator apps, I prefer to use the stock Calculator app on iPhone. Its simple UI and easy-to -use features impress me a lot.
