    Is it just me or are others experiencing this as well?

    If I copy information from a body of an email and try to paste it into a new email body, I do not receive an option to paste.

    I can paste it in the area where we notate the TO : or even in the Subject : line but not in the body..

    Thoughts? :(

    Seems to be working fine here. Have you tried restarting?

    I did a fresh install of the iOS 10 GM.

    Any other thoughts?

    Seems to be a bug where the paste menu doesn't come up the first time you tap an empty line.

    Experienced same thing on iphone6 plus with ios10. The only way I found to paste into the body of an email was to insert even a single character or hit the space bar, then I am able to see the paste function.
    This is the same for yahoo, gmail and icloud email. Looks like a bug fix may be on the way.

    I am having the same problem. I did a reboot on my 6s, and no change.

    Can anyone help?

    I did searches on macrumors and online, but can't find any fixes / suggestions or advice

    It's not a "new enhanced feature", it's just an alternative way of doing it (vs. tap and hold) that's been around for a long time now.

    Thanks, but that's the problem. Tap and hold gives you the bubble, but then nothing. It does not work in mail, like it does everywhere else.

    Correct, there is an issue there in that respect. There are straightforward/simple workarounds for it as well until the issue gets resolved.

    I haven't really checked personally, but based on the iOS 10.2 release notes it seems like this issue might have been fixed in 10.2.

    What device and iOS version? Does double-tapping work?
