    Hello

    I've read about the new text selection on iOS 9 using two fingers like a trackpad on the iPad, also seen you can do it on the iPhone as well but can't seem to do it on my device (iPhone 5S).

    Anyone else tried? Wondering if it might be limited to nearer devices (iPhone 6 and Plus).

    Cheers,

    C

    Such a shame because they've removed the old paragraph selection (use two figers on a line or paragraph for quick selection) so now I don't have any quick way to select text. Hope they bring back the old way or fix the new way.

    You can do it on iPads and on the new iPhone 6s/6s Plus (none of the earlier iPhones support it).
