    This is probably something I should know but I don't know if it's an issue with my phone or if I'm just too dumb to figure this out.

    I'll use Maps for my example but the same applies to safari, etc. Say you use the search field enter an address but realize the house number is incorrect but it's already off the screen to the left. How do you scroll back to it without reentering the entire address?

    I know in Android you just slide the field and you can edit any part of it.

    Here is a screen shot if it helps to explain what I mean.

    I can't get the cursor farther to the left where the address is.

    I find this particularly annoying with long string internet searches.

    Tap and hold at the text field till the magnifier appears and then just slide your finger to the very left.
