Yep, there are tons of hidden iPhone daily tricks you can try right now but we bet you haven't heard of this one before.

Ever tried using the iPhone's calculator app and accidentally type in the wrong number? You might want to correct it but a backspace key is nowhere to be found.

So you hit C to clear every number you just typed in to start over. If you're Bill Gates' accountant and you have to put in eleven digits worth of billions at a time, then that's bad news, right? (Oh, and don't tell him you use an iPhone.)

But by Pythagoras, you will love this! There's actually a backspace on the iPhone's calculator! (Nope, it's not "shake to undo." We know that you know we tried that.)

Don't feel bad if you haven't heard about this super-duper secret because there's been no mention of it anywhere... until now.

And it's actually driving everyone bonkers like it's an M. Night Shyamalan plot twist since "it was there all along."

Swipe to erase

OK, so it turns out, all you have to do is to swipe across the iPhone calculator's numbers, left or right, it doesn't matter which way. Swiping on the numbers will delete the last digit that has been entered.

Don't you believe us? Try it yourself and be prepared to get blown away.

For the sake of posterity, here's a Twitter user graciously providing video proof of this previously unknown magic.

One swipe deletes one number, next swipe deletes the next, and you can do this until all the numbers are gone.

Yeah, exactly! MIND BLOWN.

This super-secret swipe-to-wipe calculator trick might just be the best kept iPhone secret ever.
