Cursor Has Delay When Pressing Around

foreyez 10 months ago in iPhone • updated 10 months ago 0

I've noticed that when I press around a document the cursor does not immediately go to its spot. There's about a 200ms delay.

1. Click somewhere on your document, the keyboard will be shown.

2. Now just press around in different areas of the document, you'll see there's a 200ms delay or so from the time that you press to the time that the cursor goes to that position.

This doesn't happen in iOS 'Notes' for example, where the cursor moves immediately as you press.
