If I try to edit text I have typed out, it is very difficult. It’s impossible to place the caret in the middle of a word and difficult to place it between. Very frustrating and I don’t understand why.

    I have the same issue. Seems like a bug.

      It’s hilarious that you blame software for the shape of human anatomy. It’s due to human fingers not being precise input devices. They are large and rounded so it’s tough to know exactly which point will contact. That’s why you can just hold down on spacebar and move around the cursor.

        It’s hilarious that you make assumptions. I use the spacebar trick. I place the cursor in the middle of a word, and then the cursor bounces back to the beginning of the sentence or somewhere else entirely. I’ve never had an issue until iOS 17. Hence, seems like a bug.

        Edit: I should add, I could totally be wrong. And it still might be user error. I have no idea. But the cursor bouncing all around is a recent issue I’ve been encountering since my new phone and new iOS.

          I don’t have ios 17, but have the problem with the space bar technique. I found it works with SwiftKey, but not the Default keyboard.
