New Apple iPads Go On Sale At Fifth Avenue Store

Mathematics will become significantly easier on the iPad.

Apple announced at its annual keynote on Monday that it will finally be bringing the Calculator app to the iPad, garnering praise from attendees and on social media. The first version of the iPad was released in 2010, and in the 14 years since its debut, the tablet has never had Apple’s official Calculator app. Without the official app, iPad users who wanted to perform mathematical calculations on their tablets had to resort to using a web browser or downloading a third-party app.

However, this will change when the app arrives this fall. In addition to standard mathematical calculations, the app will be capable of performing unit conversions.

The new iPad version of the app will also introduce a new feature called Math Notes, which will enable users to write mathematical problems by hand using the Apple Pencil. The Calculator app will then automatically solve these problems.
