You may be wondering where are the inverse and hyperbolic functions.
When you tap sin for example, all is revealed:
If you don’t use hyperbolic functions, there is also a quicker way.

On the surface, this button switches between degrees and radians.
When you tap and hold, you get contextual options.
In radians, you can see your result in terms of pi or tau.
Initially you have 2 memories for the Touch Bar. You can get more:
This expands into 2 parts.
Part B is quite smart — it examines the context and brings you the relevant options.
A Number formats
They are general, decimal places, scientific, and fraction.
For engineering, quantifier, and significant digits, tap
B Contextual control
Sometimes, depending on the context of your calculation and format, you want to look at results differently. Previously you had to dig deep, now it’s one tap away.
Here are the scenarios:
This one is good to know. It transforms a number from one form to another.
- Sign Transform
e.g. 2 → -2
- Inverse Transform
e.g. 2 → 2⁻¹ = ½ = 0.5
Also: cosine → secant
- Percent Transform
e.g. 0.5 → 50%
- Time Transform
e.g. 2.5 → 2:30
