One thing many people don’t know is that their iPad and iPhones are packed with tons of neat hidden features and this is including iOS 16 which features the ability to connect your Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers and also easily view and share all of your saved Wi-Fi passwords al from your settings.

Hidden features interestingly have always been around on iOS. And even though you are running your device on an older software package such as iOS 15, there is always something new to find such as the secret trackpad feature in your iPhone keyboard.

In the event that you are editing a text, you probably may hold your finger down on the screen and then move the cursor around all the numbers, punctuations and even letters to get to the place you want. Also, a magnifying bubble may provide you with some help by simply enlarging the text underneath your finger, but there is another way with which you can move your cursor around smoothly and swiftly.

To discover the hidden trackpad on your iOS device follow the steps below;

Now you should feel a bit of haptic feedback and then see the cursor enlarge for a second which means that you can now use the keyboard as a trackpad.
  • And with your finger still pressed down, move it around the keyboard in order to move the cursor just as you would on the trackpad of your Mac.
  • Simply lift your finger off the screen to place the cursor. And now you can make use of any of the other keys such as delete to make edits in the text and if you want to move the cursor again, press your finger on the space bar to bring the hidden trackpad.
