Reviewed.com – Jeremy Stamasiphone calculator (Photo: USATODAY)What if I told you the iPhone’s calculator app let you backspace through numbers?
That would date the calculator swipe back to at least iOS 4, which launched in June 2010.
It started with a tweet on May 2, when a user under the handle @censoredialogue pointed out iPhone owners can backspace through numbers by swiping on the display.
Judging from the reaction to the tweet, which has nearly 34,000 likes, it seems there were still a lot of iPhone owners who never knew this feature existed.
