Internet is going wild for this hidden iPhone feature

If you're an iPhone user, this piece of information may be beneficial for you!

There's an Apple iPhone trick that people started talking about recently, and it's really useful for editing blocks of text after you begin typing.

Typically, if you're writing a long text message, entering a URL in a browser or typing out text in an email, you'd have to double tap an area of text and hold down to move your cursor to an area of text that you might want to edit. You're probably familiar with this tool, which brings up a tiny magnifying glass on the screen.

However, a Twitter user, who goes by the handle @krissys_kitchen, tweeted out a 'trick' on the iPhones which left several users baffled.

"If you click and hold the spacebar, you can move the cursor instead of trying to drag the cursor itself with your fat thumb lol," she wrote. "How come you guys never told me this iPhone trick? I feel duped."


And apparently it works perfectly fine!


You can now scroll around your texts effortlessly with your big old thumb, find the perfect place to correct yourself and save precious seconds of life in the process. Intense text arguments between newly estranged lovers will soon be a thing of eloquence and class. Just use that space bar!

The 'hidden' feature literally gave Twitter users new life who couldn't thank her enough for sharing it with them on the platform.
