Just get a new iPhone? Your life's about to get so much easier.
A new feature built into the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus is finally putting an end to the frustrating days of having drag those blue circles around to highlight text. Instead, Apple has created an ingenious way of selecting or highlighting text by using the new 3D Touch technology built into the display of the new phones, as demonstrated in a video tweeted by TechCrunch Editor-in-Chief, Matthew Panzarino:

As Panzarino explains, if you press lightly on the phone's display while composing text, the keyboard is blurred away and you're given the ability to scroll the cursor through your text. If you press harder, the cursor highlights the text as you swipe. Now, whoever you're messaging won't have to agonize over the typing bubbles for eons while you edit yourself for the right amounts of "ha" in your extended "hahaha," because seriously, just chill.
