Tip #3. Copy Last Result from Control Centre in iOS Calc App
How often do you close your calculator from recent apps after doing a perfect calculation for your lengthy bills? Well, if you do that, it might erase the result of your calculations. To avoid this, you can easily copy the last result on your iPhone running on iOS 13/12 with this simple trick.
Swipe up (or swipe down) and head over to the control center, long press on Calculator icon from the control center. It now shows you the last result, tap on it to copy and it’s done!
Tip #4. Access Scientific Calculator on your iPhone
Initially, most of the users didn’t know that the iPhone comes with a scientific calculator in its calculator app. In fact, many of you might be still wondering how to get a scientific calculator on a smartphone running on iOS, isn’t it? Well, it is pretty simple!
Simply, tilt your iPhone to landscape mode and you’ll now see a scientific calculator on your screen rather than a normal calculator.

So with this, you can now get rid of those iPhone calculator apps which you used for scientific calculations and get out of the dark side believing that iPhone doesn’t come with a scientific calculator.
Tip #5. Use iPhone Search for Instant Calculation
While not many prefer to use iPhone search option to do calculations, but it’s a handy option if you don’t want to open the calculator app for a small calculation. It saves some amount of battery if you don’t open an app. So here’s how you can do calculations via iPhone search on iOS 13/12!
Head over to iPhone search by swiping your screen from left to right from home screen. On the top bar, you can see a search option. Now comes the trickiest part because you need to enter the numbers and mathematical operations manually. Say for example “340X23” which equals to 7,820 appears right below the search bar.
In this case, the multiplication symbol used is the alphabet “X” and the minus & divide options are already available in the keyboard itself. Of course, this is a lengthy process but it can save a good amount of battery if you do calculations regularly and you don’t use calculator app for the same.
