    Here is the bug:

    Copy some texts from browser or anything else.
    Go to mail apps
    Compose a new message or reply to a message
    Paste the texts that you copied
    --- It would not let you paste it.
    --- Similarly when you tried to insert an image/attachment, it will not work.

    The only way to work around this is to type a character and then press & hold the screen to let the commands pop up.

    How to report this bug? It's quite annoying as this is not what I expect from Apple

    I just copied and pasted your post into a new mail and it worked. Didn't have to type a character.

    You can report bugs at http://bugreport.apple.com

    Bugs are things that exist in software, especially in something much more complex like an OS, and especially so when a new version of one comes out. It's not to say that it's good or anything like that, but not really unexpected.

    I couldn't copy and paste into mail without typing a character first.

    Very odd bug. I'm using an iPhone 7, wonder if the hardware has any effect?

    I tried on an ipad pro 9.7 and an iPhone SE. I suppose there's a possibility it may be account specific too. Icloud mail in both cases, for what it's worth.

    I tried it on my iPhone 6 and couldn't paste text to an empty email. But after typing one letter, it was ok.

    What type of account? Trying to narrow it down between device, account etc.

    It's not a bug. You are going to double tap now to bring up that menu, instead of holding down.

    Checked and double tap works indeed. However after typing any letter you can also hold down and the menu will appear.

    It works the same as always for me. No double tapping or typing beforehand required. o_O

    Me too. Thinking there's a setting or something but can't think what it may be

    The double tap does work. The normal way hasn't for me on a 6+ or a 7+. Odd that apple would change that behavior only in Mail. Or is it this way in other apps? I know the old way works in messages. The new way does, too.

    Double tap is the old way too as it's been around for a long time as well.
