The Simple iPhone Hack That'll Blow Your Mind
We've always been a company that supports technical advancements, especially when it comes to new vaporizers; however, we have to share something that blew the minds of many of our staff.
So apparently this hack is largely unknown to many and the reason why it’s all of a sudden gone viral on social media is because it will literally change the way you text if you use an iPhone (we’re not kidding, it’ll literally change your life).
Despite being available on iPhones for the last three years, this keyboard feature has recently been discovered by thousands of iPhone users after a food blogger, Krissy Brierre-Davis, shared her discovery on Twitter.
“How come you guys never told me this iPhone trick? I feel duped,” she wrote, alongside a screenshot of her iPhone’s space bar moving the cursor.
She continued: “If you click and hold the space bar, you can move the cursor instead of trying to drag the cursor itself with your fat thumb lol.”
The tweet, which has since received more than 31,000 likes, led people to try the trick out for themselves.
“This is life-changing information,” one person wrote of the ability to easily move the cursor.
Another said: “You just blew my mind.”
Several at Cali Steam said, “Are you fu*& kidding me? Why isn’t this part of the Apple’s instructions when you buy the phone?”
The move can also be used to highlight words or sentences: “Not only can you do that but while dragging the cursor, you can press down a little harder and can highlight a word or a sentence,” another person explained.
And you likely also have more options than using only the space bar - as holding down any key on an iOS keyboard on a 3D Touch-enabled device, brings up the option.
However, others pointed out that the ability isn’t new as it’s been around since the iPhone 6S, which was released in 2015. Unfortunately for some, the typing feature, described as “gliding your scissors across wrapping paper,” only works on the 6S and iPhone models that came out after.
So if this was news to you we just say, “You’re welcome.” It certainly gave us a lot of laughs around the office and literally blew some staffers minds.
