iPhone keyboard as trackpad

by Volker Weber

If your iPhone has force touch, it also has a trackpad

Thanks! Cool - and very helpful.

Und wie mache ich das, wenn gerade ich gerade keine Tastatur habe?
Z.B.: ich möchte einen Teil einer mail kopieren und diesen woanders einfügen.
Dann habe ich meines Wissens nach wie vor nur diesen Anfangs- und Endbalken, den man recht fummelig verschieben kann, oder gibts da auch einen Trick dafür?

Das Trackpad (im Tastaturbereich) funktioniert auch auf iOS Geräten ohne Force Touch (z.B. bei meinem iPad Air 2): Einfach mit zwei Fingern auf der Tastatur den Cursor verschieben.

I always, always forget this. Which is daft as I use it regularly on my iPad Air 2.

One of the best hidden features. But even people who I remind about this forget it exists. I use it all the time.
