The iOS 11 Calculator Bug Has been Fixed, Animations Restored in iOS 11.3 Beta

Though iOS 11 is a feature-packed release, it does come with a fair share of bugs as well. One of those bugs originates in the Calculator app where typing in 1+2+3 rapidly results in an incorrect answer. This happened due to the button animations running their course whenever you tap on anything in the Calculator app. So, in order to remedy the situation, Apple removed the animations from the Calculator app with the release of iOS 11.2.
