The iPhone’s built-in Calculator app doesn’t have a traditional history log like some other calculators. However, you can still access your recent calculations using a couple of handy methods.

iPhone Calculator History

Method 1: Copy Last Result

This method lets you quickly retrieve the result of your most recent calculation.

  1. Open Control Center: Swipe down from the top-right corner of your screen (or swipe up from the bottom on older iPhones).
  2. Tap and hold Calculator icon: A menu will appear.
  3. Select “Copy Last Result”: The result of your last calculation will be copied to your clipboard. You can then paste it into another app or document.

Method 2: Use the Memory Function (Scientific Calculator)

This method allows you to store and recall values during your calculations.

  1. Rotate your iPhone: Turn your iPhone to landscape orientation to access the scientific calculator.
  2. Use Memory Buttons:
    • “M+”: Adds the current value to the memory.
    • “M-“: Subtracts the current value from the memory.
    • “MR”: Recalls the value stored in memory.
    • “MC”: Clears the memory.

Third-Party Calculator Apps

If you frequently need to review your calculation history, consider downloading a third-party calculator app. Many calculator apps available on the App Store offer a history feature that keeps a log of your calculations.
