This Secret iOS Trackpad Makes Typing on Your iPhone So Much Easier – CNET

Apple continues to innovate on the iPhone with each release of iOS, yet the stock keyboard remains a source of frustration for many iPhone users. One of the biggest problems with typing on the iPhone is accurately placing the cursor.
The conventional method of tapping and holding your finger down on the screen to bring up a magnifying bubble becomes maddening when you can’t get the cursor to go exactly where you want. Luckily, there’s another way to move the cursor when typing in iOS, and it works even if you’re running an older software version, like iOS 16.

1.Anywhere you’ve written a block of text, bring up your keyboard and press and hold your finger down on the space key until the keyboard goes blank. You should feel a bit of haptic feedback and see the cursor enlarge for a second, which means you can now use the keyboard as a trackpad.

2.With your finger still pressed down, move it around the entire keyboard to move your cursor, just like you would on your Mac’s trackpad.
3. To place the cursor, simply lift your finger off the screen. You can then use any of the other keys, like Delete, to make any edits in the text. If you want to move the cursor once again, press your finger down on the space key to bring up the hidden trackpad.
