Today, we wanted to bring you a tech tip for #techtiptuesday. Today is all about saving time on your iPhone while typing. Recently, people have discovered a really useful trick for editing blocks of text while you’re typing on an iPhone. The main tip here is how to scroll through the text you’re writing, to edit and make changes where needed! We are used to having to double tap and holding down and trying to move the cursor exactly where we needed, which never seemed to work and was quite tricky on those small screens!
Once you’re typing anywhere on your phone (including email, text, notes, web browser, and more), you may notice a typo or change you want to make. Next, you’ll want to hold down the keyboard on your iPhone/iPad. You’ll notice that suddenly, all the letters disappear, and suddenly your keyboard is a giant mousepad. You can use this, while holding down, to scroll through your block of text.
This is a specific way to edit different parts of text blocks on your iPhone, and is a fairly simple trick to learn to master your tech!
