Technology has come a long way since its inception. Everyday we’re witnessing the creation of even tinier devices that hold even more information inside themselves, and it’s mind boggling! How do you really feel knowing that somewhere in the world there is a chip the size of the nail on your little finger that can store your whole life’s worth of documentation and then some? It seems so incredible that it feels as though it can not get any smaller, but science beats us to the punch.

The first phone call was placed on March 10, 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell called his assistant, Thomas Watson and told him to come over. Fast forward a century and a half, and the ‘caller’ option on the phone is probably the least used out of all. Nowadays, we use our phones for everything. There are apps that can remind you to drink water and even apps that regulate the warmth of your house and the security system in your office. Everything is digital, and society seems to thrive in these conditions.

However, we may use our phones 99% of our waking hours, but do we really know everything there is to know about them? Just when you thought you knew every in and out of your iPhone, a new "secret" function makes itself known. Apparently, the calculator app on the iPhone comes with one handy function to help you not get lost in the middle of doing your math. This means that if you mess up your numbers in the middle of a big mathematical operation, you can easily swipe left or right to delete the unnecessary digits. Thank you, iPhone Calculator!
