How to View Calculator History on iPhone?

Apple products are undoubtedly one of the most popular gadgets in the world of technology. Anyone and everyone around you could have one when you go to ask. Calculator is a device that is a necessary and necessary addition to any type of smart gadget that you carry with you.

AdvertisementQuickly calculate your grocery bill, what you owe your friends, or maybe just your taxes. The calculator app is always helpful in such situations.

Calculator and apple products have a bit of a weird history between them. Apple has launched products like the iPad which start at around $400 but, interestingly, didn’t include a calculator app on the device for several reasons.

Customers had to download a calculator app from the app store, which doesn’t seem like a problem but is unnecessary.

Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president, has since said that when they make the calculator for the iPad, they want to do it perfectly and leave nothing out. We’ll all be waiting for it, won’t we?

The calculator app is sometimes tricky for anyone without smartphone experience. And Apple apps are tricky for anyone new to Apple.

Calculator history is something that users may need to check for their missed calculations or their latest calculations.

There is no way to access the default calculator history available on the iPhone. There is a recent history available for the calculations performed, but no further than that.

In this article, let’s walk through the steps to view calculator history on an iPhone.

How to View iPhone Calculator History via Memory Feature

Step 1. Open the calculator app on your iPhone.

2nd step. Put the phone in landscape position. The calculator will turn into a scientific calculator, it will have additional features in the calculator app.

Step 3. Here you can see the memory function, named ‘mr’, ‘m-‘, ‘m+’, ‘mc’

Step 4. Use ‘m+’ to store the current result in calculator memory.

Step 5. You can continue your calculations and then use ‘mr’ to return the number stored in memory.

The “mc” gives the memory clear function for the calculator and the “m-” subtracts the recent memory from the calculator record.

This is a rather complicated way to access the calculator’s memory. The memory function does not resemble simplicity and therefore is not preferable for anyone trying to get their job done quickly and quickly.

There are several other ways to access calculator memory. The one we are going to discuss is copying your last result.

View an iPhone’s Calculator History via Result Copy

Step 1. Unlock your iPhone and go to the Calculator app.

2nd step. Long press the calculator app icon.

Step 3. Press and select “Copy last result”. The last result is now copied to your clipboard.

Step 4. You can also long press on the calculator app in the control center and select “Copy last result from there”.

Step 5. By following the above steps, the latest calculator result is stored in your clipboard and you can use the information accordingly.

Although it is a slightly easier method than before, there is no real use in applying this method. The last result of the calculator is not really useful for most users.

What else can you do to access your calculator history on your iPhone? Well, there is another way that will sound a little over the top, but it helps.

For your longer calculations, there may be another way to save all your calculation history. For your taxes and groceries, you can’t miss a single calculation because it would make you lose track of your expenses.

For that, you can try screen recording.

Steps to track your compute history via screen recording.

Step 1. Open Control Center on your iPhone.

2nd step. Press the screen recording button, the recording will start after 3 seconds.

Step 3. Do your calculations on your calculator the way you want. Don’t worry about any of the above steps when doing your calculations.

Step 4. When you are done with all the calculations, tap the screen recording app timer on the top corner of your iPhone screen.

Step 5. There will be a prompt confirming if you want to stop recording, just click stop and the recording will stop.

You can access the recording in the Photos app whenever you want. It might help you with your iPhone calculator history.

All of this may have solved your problem, but there is an easier way to help your case than anything mentioned above.

Just download another calculator app from the Apple App Store.

The above methods are used, but this seems like a solution for people in a hurry and don’t want to download another app for such a small problem.

Alternative Calculator Apps for iPhone

There are a few calculator apps that are quite well received in the app store.

  1. Pcalc: There is a lite version for this app as well as a paid version worth $9.99. You get a lot to do with the base package, including trigonometric and logging functions, a radian mode, undo and redo operations, unit conversions, and constants.
  2. Calcularium: It is a free app with some cool features, namely a handwriting feature that saves your calculations in your handwriting and gives you the result.
  3. Numeric2: It is also a free app on app store including no equal button. By eliminating the equals button and automatically introducing parentheses in processes, the program speeds up typing.
  4. Calzy: It is a paid app worth $1.99 on the App Store. It has a “memory area” to quickly identify calculations, variables, and other data items that you may need to keep for handy reference over many sessions.


We hope to be able to provide all possible solutions to such a problem. Everything mentioned above is a solution, but we suggest that if you want a calculator with more than basic features, go for one of the apps mentioned above to have a better experience. Third-party apps are more flexible and customizable to your usage.
