Every iOS update brings new features to facilitate your life a little bit. However, sometimes we don't even know all of them, and some can actually be very helpful. For example, did you know that iPhones and iPads have a secret trackpad that you can activate to move the cursor and easily make edits when writing or typing something? Well, there is a quick and useful way. Read on to discover it.
How to unleash hidden trackpad on iPhone or iPad?
- Anywhere you write a text (Notes, Messages, etc.), open your keyboard and press and hold your finger down on the Space key. The keyboard then will go blank, and the cursor will enlarge a little bit. Now the hidden trackpad is activated and you can use it.
- Press down your finger and move it around the entire keyboard. It would resemble a little bit the Mac's trackpad if you are used to it.
- To place the cursor, lift your finger off the screen and edit your text if you wish to.
- To move the cursor once again, simply press your finger down on the Space key.
Easy, right? The same feature works on older software versions, like iOS 15.
