Move the cursor in a text field

Move cursor Have you ever been typing in a text field and wanted to move the cursor, but didn't know how to move it without a D-pad or arrow keys? Well, all you need to do is press the Orange/Silver 'Opt' key and then drag your finger anywhere on the screen in the direction that you want to move the cursor. Note that you do not need to put your finger over the cursor, you just need to move it in the requested direction.

Think of holding down the Opt key as going into 'cursor placement mode' and then all your swipes anywhere on the screen act as away to drag the cursor around.
