One of the iPhone’s new features in iOS 13 are gestures that let you copy and paste text quickly with three fingers.
These new iPhone gestures can feel clumsy at first but are easy to master with a bit of practice.
Here’s the simple process for copying and pasting text with gestures.
How to copy and paste using gestures on your iPhone
1. Select what you want to copy by highlighting the text.
2. Placing three fingers on the screen, make a pinching-in motion. You’ll see a confirmation that the screen has read the gesture correctly at the top.
3. From there, move your cursor to where you want the text to go, and pinch out with three fingers to paste.
The gestures can take some getting used to, particularly if you have big fingers, an iPhone with a smaller screen, or both.
But with a little finessing, copying and pasting with gestures for iPhone might soon feel as natural as using CTRL+C and CTRL+V on your computer’s keyboard.
