Apple is finally planning a calculator app for the iPad, more than 14 years after the device's launch, according to a source familiar with the matter.


iPadOS 18 will include a built-in Calculator app for all iPad models compatible with the software update, which is expected to be unveiled during the opening keynote at Apple's annual WWDC developer conference on June 10.
