Rick ChurchillSome time ago while typing text on iPads and iPhones, placing your finger on the text, you were able to move the cursor easily because of an enlarged cursor (and characters?) appeared above your finger. This feature disappeared. Only recently I found it has been replaced by a different but slightly slower technique which I was completely unaware of (not bothering to run through laborious introductions every time Apple update their O.S.)
By tapping in the vicinity of where you want the cursor then holding "down' the spacebar, the keycaps lettering disappears. Moving your finger you then control the position of the cursor above and can easily place it between the required characters. "Releasing" the spacebar the keycaps reappear.
Anymore new features I've missed.
