When you tap on a computer, you can use a mouse or trackpad to control the cursor. As long as you have not set up a mouse with your iPhone, you will not have this option on the go. For this reason, iOS must find ways to move the cursor so you can easily type where you want. Among other things, Apple has the ability to move the cursor anywhere.
How does it work? If your keyboard is currently inactive, just tap where you want the cursor to be. If your cursor is already active, tap the word you want to jump to, which positions the cursor at the beginning or end of the word. Then long press on the center of the word, let go and watch the cursor appear in the middle.
This is a simple action, but it can help to make your edits more precise. If you tap on your iPhone for a long time, you know Precision is indispensable and very often hard to come by. Have fun typing!
