Then, without releasing the press, slide across the screen until it is in the position of your choice.

If you are a user of the iPhone calculator, you will have noticed that does not have a key to delete the digits that we have written on the display. This is because instead of using a keyboard space for this, Apple decided to implement a more ingenious option, although unknown to many.
