    Abstract: An apparatus capable of erasing content includes a touch display unit, a time calculating time, a storage unit, an area detecting unit, a control unit, and an erasing unit. The touch display unit determines a first touched place of a touch operation applied by an input apparatus on the touch display unit, a touch area of the first touched place, and a touch trace of the touch operation according to changing of touch coordinates. The control unit activates the time calculating unit to calculate a time duration of the touch operation when the size of the touch area is larger than the predetermined area size, and generates an erasing signal when the touch trace matches a predetermined trace pattern. The erasing unit erases content covered by the touch trace on the touch display unit in response to the erasing signal. A related method is also provided.
