The Apple Watch Tip Calculator helps you divvy up the bill and quickly calculate tips. Let’s find out how to use it!
How to use Apple Watch Tip Calculator
The social cost of appearing stingy or unfriendly in proposing an even split of a bill (dining) may seem daunting but if you’re cost-conscious, you shouldn’t mind choosing the option. Calculating the portion of the tax and tip that apply to that share can be done with the Apple Watch Tip Calculator.
- Open the Calculator app on your Apple Watch.
- Enter the total of the bill.
- Tap the TIP button.
- 10% tip is the default.
- Use the Digital Crown to change the value.
- Tap the People button.
- Turn the Digital Crown clockwise to set the number of people.
- Split the bill accordingly.
To make this feature work, make sure your watchOS is updated watchOS 6 or later versions. In addition, you should keep in mind that the tip feature is available in selected countries and regions only.
How do you calculate tip on Apple Calculator?
Apart from using the Apple Calculator app to perform basic arithmetic calculations, you can also use it to quickly calculate a tip and split the check. Here’s how!
Unlock your Apple Watch by entering the passcode. Open the Calculator app by selecting it from the List View.
Enter the bill amount. There, you should see the Tip button just adjacent to the Division operation.
Upon seeing a new screen, turn the Digital Crown to choose a tip percentage. By default, this value is set to 10 percent. You can change this to the desired value.
Once done, tap the People tab to select the number of individuals to divvy up the bill. Note – There is a limit of 50 people for bill splitting.
The app will then show the amount each person in the group needs to pay while dining out together.
Remember – If you remove the Calculator app from your iPhone, it won’t appear under your Apple Watch apps also and you won’t be able to use this feature.
Hope that makes sense!
