Selecting text, particularly entire paragraphs in Notes and other text-heavy apps can be tricky, if not somewhat difficult.
If you need to select an entire paragraph, the first intuition most iPhone and iPad users have is to double-tap a word and drag the text selection handles to cover the entire paragraph.
Though this is an effective method of getting all your text selected, there's an easier way.
Next time you have to select a paragraph to copy and paste somewhere else, try using two fingers and swiping across the paragraph you wish to copy. The text will be selected with the option to copy.
Users can also quadruple-tap a paragraph to select an entire paragraph or, just as you would zoom in to a photograph, take two fingers and pinch/pull them to select a greater range of text.
