Oops! I made a mistake on one of the calculations I’m doing on my iPhone calculator.
All I need is to access the calculator history to check on the previous calculations I made and find where the mistake is.
But, is that nifty calculator feature also available on iPhone like it is on Android devices?
Let’s check it in a bit by continuing to read below.
Currently, iPhone’s native calculator app doesn’t have a history feature. But, you can long-press the calculator app and tap “Copy Last Result.” Another way is to download “Calculator HD Pro Lite” and press the “History” icon after making a few calculations.
Alternative Method 1: Checking the iPhone Calculator History by Long-Pressing the Calculator App Icon
Even if iPhone’s native calculator app doesn’t have a calculator history, you still can access the last result on the app.
Step 1: Press and hold the iPhone calculator app icon.
Step 2: Tap “Copy Last Result.”
This option is listed with 2 other options: “Copy Last Result,” “Edit Home Screen,” and “Remove App.”
Copy and then paste the said last result where you need it to be.
But, if you prefer to have a detailed calculator history, download another calculator app called “HD Calculator Pro Lite.”
Alternative Method 2: Checking the iPhone Calculator History by Downloading a Third-Party App
Step 1: Press the “App Store” icon.
Step 2: Tap and type “HD Calculator Pro Lite” in the search bar.
A list of apps that are somewhat related to the keywords you typed will appear.
Step 3: Swipe up and press the “Get” button of the “The Calculator” app.
This is if you can’t find the “HD Calculator Pro Lite” app. Wait for it to be installed.
Step 4: Press the newly-installed calculator app’s icon.
Since it’s your first time using the app, a few message prompts will appear before you can proceed with using it.
Keep pressing the “Continue” button until you reach the “Snap a Picture, Solve Your Math” page.
Step 5: Tap the “X” button on the “Snap a Picture, Solve Your Math” page.
It is because once you proceed with tapping “Continue,” you’ll be asked to pay to upgrade to a premium account.
Since we’re just using this calculator app for the history feature, it’s best not to proceed with the upgrade.
Step 6: Make some calculations on the app by pressing the number and operation buttons.
Step 7: Tap the “Calculations History” icon.
You’ll find this button on the leftmost part of the taskbar.
You will then find a dropdown menu listing all the previous calculations you’ve made, with the most recent one at the top of the said list.
Plus, you’ll also see both the exact operation you made along with the results.
Step 8: Press the “Calculations History” icon again to minimize the calculations history window.
Wow! I didn’t know there was such a nifty calculator app that I can install on my iPhone complete with a calculations history feature.
So, which of these 2 alternative methods are you going to use from now on to see your iPhone’s calculator history?
