iPhone 4 Calculator Bug : when dividing 225 by 15, it produces an answer of 1

I have to be honest. When I read your post I thought "there is no way this is true." Well I tried it on my iPhone 4 with iOS 5 and indeed you are correct. For me, when I hit the equal sign it doesn't do anything, but the second time I hit equals it returns an answer of 1. This has to be some type of bug. Who does Apple think they are messing up my calculator and actually assuming I will strain my brain to think about this...only kidding, but a bug none the less.

Not only IPhone 4, my IPhone 3GS (iOS 5) has the same bug.. or is it a hidden feature?

I'm not convinced it is a bug. 225/15=15. if I enter 225, then press the "divide by" symbol, enter 15, then hit equal, I get 15. If you hit "equals" again, you are dividing 15 by 15 which is 1. Hit equals a third time and you'll get 0.06666667 (which is 1 divided by 15).
That's the way my iOS calculator behaves, and I think it is just the repetitive action function that calculator has alwasy had. If you enter 15, then press the "multiply by" symbol, and enter 15 again, then press "equals" you get 225, and as you repeatedly hit "equals" you will mulitply the displayed number by 15 again and again.

You must be joking right? 225/15 = 15
15/15 = 1
No problems here

It does it because hitting the "=" button again makes it dividing 15 by 15...which is "1".
Try this for example:
(">" means hitting "=" again)
300 / 10 = 30 > = 10 > = 3 > = 0,3 and so on.
Understand?

Doesn't sound like a bug to me. it sounds like correct math!
225 / 15 = 15
It's displaying the answer, it just doesn't look like it, because there's no indication it's displaying the answer instead of the last entry in the problem.
When you hit = again, it assumes you mean:
The current answer (which happens to be 15) / 15, which equals 1

On my iPhone 4 and my wife's iPhone 3GS, both with iOS 5.0:
225 / 15 = 15

I just realized that fact and am a victim of other calculators and their reassuring halfsecond blank out before displaying that answer. I am so used to that as a sign that the calculator has or at least tried to perform the function.

That's because normal calcultors don't have an A4processor

It would have to be a bug if it doesn't give you the full answer. Why wouldn't the number 15 come up if that is the answer?

Appreciate the feedback. A coworker seemingly remedied this problem on my phone by pushing the "C" button 10+ times. I now receive the correct answer of 15 after hitting the "=" button one time. Pushing the "C" button 23 times as I was doing after each test, was evidently not enough to fully reset. Clearly something is/was amiss in my phone.

Thanks, Fry. I see what you did there.
