    Is there any way to go to the end of the line in the iOS 7 Safari search bar?

    Say for example I search for a term that scrolls off the edge of the screen and I want to go back and search for the same thing again but add even more text. It's highlighted so if I press space it erases my previous search term and I have to type the whole lot again.

    I don't understand... Could you post some screenshots maybe? I don't know what you're trying to say :p

    Try touching the highlighted text so the pointer shows up and then drag the pointer to the right.

    In a case like that, assuming you are on a search results page from Google or some other search provider, you might have an easier time using the search bar from that provider at the top of that page (which should already have your current search in it).

    That's it! Genius. Kind of laborious, but better than what I was doing before.

    Selecting text/editing urls in safari is a PITA with iOS7.

    Yeah, this is one downside to having a unified bar, if I'm not mistaken. If you want to add to the end of a string in this unified bar, it's usually a search and not a URL. In the old safari, tapping into the search bit would put the cursor at the end. Tapping on the URL would highlight the URL (ready for you to a put a new one in). There's no distinction now, so it always highlights.

    Oops, its one of the long standing iOS issues. Would love to see some gestures added to the keyboard that would facilitate things like cmd-arrow functions.

    True for pretty much any text. Especially for snippets of text here and there. I don't believe selecting more than one block of text is even possible.
