CNET News Video: iPhone OS 3.0: Copy and paste

1:45 /

At long last, iPhone users will soon be able to copy and paste text and images. Apple's senior vice president of iPhone software, Scott Forstall, demonstrates the new tap-and-drag feature.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 >> So we have been working really hard to design a easy to use, straight forward user interface for cut, copy, and paste on our large touch screen display. And we think we've nailed it. Let me go ahead and just demo it for you now. Here's a message here from Daniel Vincent, I guess we're going to some conference in Hawaii, he wants to know what flight I want to take, and what I'd like to do there. Let me go ahead and reply to him. I'll scroll down, and here's how you now select text on the phone, that's it. You double tap onto the text, and it automatically selects that text. And now I'll put my thumb on that right grab point. I get a magnifier for the selection. Drag it down, select that entire block, and take copy. I've now selected the whole block, again drag back to the top, double tap, and paste. We've had requests to send more than one photo at a time. And now in iPhone 3.0 you can do that. Let me go into photos, and I'll choose, I have a Wahoo album in here, here it is. Let me go ahead, I'll tap on that action button in the bottom, we're in selection mode now. I'll select the Iolani [assumed spelling] Palace, select that lighthouse, I'll say copy, copies both of those photos. Leave here, go back to mail, and again simple, tap to bring up that paste bubble, paste, and I've now pasted multiple photos right into mail. So copy paste in iPhone 3.0 ^M00:01:38 [ applause ] ^M00:01:42 [ music ]
