RE: Finding the number of digits on the iPhone Calculator
Try to find eps, such that eps + 1  1 = 0
For example, my ipad Sci:Pro Calc apps has 128 bits precision Code: 2 ^ 127 + 1  1 = Update: it is safer to double check around found eps, since 1+eps is a halfway case. 3e39 + 1  1 → 5.877471754111438e39 2e39 + 1  1 → 0
