Unlike the iPhone, the iPad never had a calculator app. And the reason for this difference is explained in two words: Steve Jobs.

An Apple employee has finally revealed the background of a decision that we had never understood until today. The reason why, on the iPad, Cupertino has never installed a calculation application like on the iPhone.

“It’s actually a funny story,” writes Tangoshukudai on Reddit; “When they were working on the iPad prototype, they had created a calculator application for the tablet, but it was simply the old app stretched to fill the screen. It’s been there in all the prototypes since the beginning, and it was thought that Apple would release it in that form. “

Then one day, a month after the official launch of the iPad, Steve Jobs sent for Scott Forstall and asked, “Where’s the new calculator design?” This thing is horrifying. ” Forstall fell from the clouds: “what new design? We thought it was ready like that.” To which Jobs got annoyed: “We can not sell this stuff.”

The fact is that you could not create a new look for the application in such a short time, so they simply decided to give up. Since since then there have always been more priority features and components, in fact the app has been shelved.
