Why is "cut" so & # 39; n undervalued editing function? It copies and deletes text, what else do you want? What about a more efficient way of doing this? With iOS 13, Apple introduced a series of new gestures and swipe movements to make it easier to edit text on the iPhone. It just happens that the cutting of text also has its own gesture.
With your text highlighted, you only need to pinch the screen twice quickly with three fingers. You know that you have completed the action correctly when you see a "Cut" balloon appear at the top of the screen. You will probably also be tipped if your text disappears.
Cutting text is not the only editing function with a new gesture. You can use swipe and pinch to copy, paste, undo and redo. Once you learn these gestures, editing text on your iPhone is a piece of cake.
