So you can undo a mistake very easily without losing all your progress.

You can set this in the Control Center.

Then turn your iPhone sideways in the calculator to unlock a hidden mode.

Tap AC to clear your entire calculation.

There are also some hidden buttons in the scientific calculator.

If you look to the left side of the screen, you will see an icon that says 2nd.
