    So I'm trying to find ways where I can easily control cursor position on my iPhone.

    example:
    I type the following phrase/sentence on Messages: I have a pet cuck.

    I want to position the cursor just after the u in the work "cuck" and correct the spelling. Any ideas on it came be done --without-- resorting to jailbreak (which is not even possible on my version anyway).

    Thanks :)

    Tap and hold to get the magnification effect to position the cursor to where you need it?

    or 3D touch the keyboard if you have 6S or 6S+.

    If you have a Plus phone you can rotate to landscape mode and there is a cursor back and forward button on the keyboard.

    That's there on the non-Plus versions as well.
