  1. Don't copy and paste without good reason. If you ever plan on learning code and actually get "good" at doing it, you must learn to never copy code if don't understand it.
  2. You copy and paste on new devices by holding down on the selected text. Sooner or later, a box with copy, paste, and something else will popup for you to use.

I was copying for good reason as I needed evidence for what I had done and the standard hold your finger down does not work on repl.it for some reason

@MissCain maybe try tapping with two fingers?

You should. Is there no "copy" option when you select the text?

@SixBeeps that ain't how it works

@AdCharity I swear I've used an iPad for at least 7 years and that's how it worked with every text element

@SixBeeps oof I'm assuming iPad has a similar OS to iPhone XR

@AdCharity Yeah, they both use iOS. My iPad has iOS 7 though so they might have changed it (in which case wth)

@SixBeeps at one point we have to realize that Apple likes to kill previous generations and force you to buy the newer sets. My iPhone 6 + literally can't run
