But on your iPhone or iPad you can do the same in a couple of clicks.

How to copy and paste on your iPhone or iPad
The first of all is going to be a clarification. Not all texts can be copied , for example what contains a pdf can not be manipulated with iOS devices unless you have a specific application for it. Of course, for everything else you can copy and paste without problem: websites of all types, messages from WhatsApp, text of an email ...
For the example we have gone to Safari and chose a random web site, for example iPadizate. We click on an article and suppose we are interested in a specific paragraph - although you can copy and paste words, phrases, paragraphs or the full text with images included. We place ourselves on the paragraph and click on a word for a long time
At that moment, a kind of magnifying glass will appear and the word will be selected in blue, a menu will appear that will allow us to search the word in question in the dictionary through "Browse", share it in networks or other apps and "Copy". It is time to drag the balls of the initial and final limit until you select the paragraph that we want to copy. When we have it, simply click on Copy .
We already have our text on the clipboard. As before, you can not only copy text from almost any site but it can also be pasted: in an email, in a messaging app like WhatsApp or Messages, in any app that allows text input, in editing a contact ... us We are going to stick it in Notes .
So let's go to Notes, open a new one and press and hold. This magnifying glass will appear again with a similar menu, in which we will see the Paste option . We click on it and that's it, we have our saved paragraph for when we need it!
This is undoubtedly one of the most useful tricks for iOS, sure that if you did not know it soon will become one of your most frequent maneuvers.
