(Pocket-lint) – Apple has long had a curious blind spot when it comes to a certain kind of widely used app for its hugely popular line of iPad tablets.
There’s no official calculator on its iPads, in short, a bizarre omission believed to be due to the idea that Apple would somehow want to innovate or outshine the competition if it wants to bother. to create a new application.
This is an odd course of action, given how useful a calculator is and how little innovation matters in the context of an app like this.
If you’re wondering how to perform calculations on your iPad, we have a few solutions for you.
Don’t buy a paid app!
We can’t speak for everyone, but the App Store is absolutely awash with paid calculator apps, with the lack of an official iPad app having something to do with it.
While some of them offer neat designs or cool features, there are so many ways to perform calculations quickly and for free that we don’t think it’s a good idea to buy any of these apps.
Plus, while some of them have a good reputation, many are scams in disguise, offering exorbitantly priced subscriptions and in-app transactions that can trick you into spending money you could absolutely be better off elsewhere. .
Ask Siri to do your calculations
Siri might not be something you use every day, but it might be a tool that’s an integral part of your life – either way, it can be very useful for a quick challenge, like a math problem.
Just use the “Hey Siri” prompt (unless you’ve turned off the smart assistant altogether) to ask her to solve a math problem and you’ll get a really quick response.
Use Google in a browser
The juggernaut that is Google may be Apple’s competitor, but you can play them against each other by simply opening a browser on your iPhone and going to Google.
