Turn the iPad Keyboard into a Trackpad

Speed Up Editing Text on iPad

Trying to place the cursor when editing text on an iPad can be cumbersome. Instead of touching and holding to use the magnifier to set the cursor, touch with two fingers in the keyboard area. The keys will change to grey and you can now move the cursor quickly and accurately—like a trackpad!
