YOUR iPhone has a hidden gesture that you probably didn't know existed.
It's a whole new way to copy and paste that everyone iPhone owner should learn.
If you've ever copied and pasted on an iPhone, you'll know that it can sometimes be frustrating.
But there's a gesture that makes it very simple.
The little-known trick was revealed by TikTok creator @howfinity, racking up thousands of likes on the app.
It works using pinch and finger-spread gestures.
First, highlight some text that you'd like to copy.
Then pinch three fingers together on the display.

This will copy the text.
Then do the opposite gesture (by spreading thread fingers outwards) to paste what you've copied.
The trick works on anything you'd like to copy.
In fact, it even works on photos.
If you go into your Photos app and do the three-finger pinch, you can quickly paste that image into another app.
It's an easy way to quickly move an image into WhatsApp or Messages.
For text, you can also add an additional pinch, and it'll transform your Copy into a Cut.
That means the text will be removed rather than simply copied.
That's not all
That's not the only quirky method of moving photos.
Simply go into your Photos app and hold your finger down on a photo.
Then without release, navigate to a Messages chat and drop the image on the char bar.
The photo you chose will then appear in Messages.
You can even select and hold multiple photos at once.
And lots of apps support this feature, so you can share to multiple places.
It doesn't just work from the Photos app either.
Late last year, we revealed how you can also share iPhone photos from other places – including Google Images in a web browser.
