Typing and selecting text on a mobile device can be tedious, especially if you have long nails or fat fingers. Try this hassle free way to move your curser and select text on your iOS device.

To easily move your curser around when typing, tap and hold the space bar until the letters disappear. This turns your keyboard into trackpad mode. Move your finger around to easily and precisely change the curser location. Start typing.

Or, to select text, enter trackpad mode then tap anywhere on the keyboard with another finger (don’t tap and hold). This enters selection mode. Move your thumb to select the desired text. From there, you can cut, copy, paste or format.
