    Ok I haven't seen this mentioned but when I turn my iPhone 6 to landscape mode and begin to type, if I have to delete anything the cursor will move but the letters will not disappear and they have not been deleted. I can turn it and then move the cursor and then they will delete. Doesn't matter what app I am in, the problem is system wide. Anyone have this problem?

    They are cursor keys, like on a desktop keyboard. They are not supposed to delete, but move the cursor only. I there is a backspace key just below the two arrow keys that has an x in the center of the key, that will delete the last letter you typed.
    On most standard keyboards there are also an up and down arrow key but not on the iOS keyboard that we are talking about.

    If I'm not mistaken the cursor keys only show on the iphone 6 plus model in landscape mode not the iphone 6.

    No, my comment came from my use of the iPhone 6 with the 4.7 screen. I don't have a 6+

    Ok. I guess the cut/copy/paste keys are exclusive to the 6+ then?
