Anyone have issues pasting things in iOS 12, for example if I go on safari and try to paste something into the link address, I tap there and nothing shows up, hold press I get a magnifier same thing with other apps such as mail or even the spotlight, I can't get the paste menu to show up.

I've never made Paste work on iOS, so I gave up and deleted it. I use it all the time on MacOS. Sorry, not helpful really.

I noticed paste has been flakey in ios12.

Another thing that really annoys me is copying a number. IOS 12 sometimes thinks it's a phone number and adds "tel:" when I paste it.

Odd. I don't seem to be experiencing that on my iPhone 7 with iOS 12.0.

What device do you have? Have you tried restarting or perhaps even resetting settings maybe?

I'm using iPhone X, I reset all settings and still not working, I have now created a new issue, iCloud Keychain stopped working after setting reset even though its enabled in iCloud.

I’m on a 6s, 12.1 b2 and have none of these issues. Maybe reset settings or a restore. Sounds like something isn’t working properly. The only thing that’s broken is the select handles(in Safari)

I fixed the iCloud issue by turning on auto fill passwords which must've turned off when I reset the settings, however I still can't paste, if I open notes and try to paste something it works normally, but anything with a search field such as safari or spotlight it doesn't show the option instead I get a magnifier if I long press and nothing if I tap, if there is text in the field I get the copy option only.
