Even though I have owned every iPhone from the 3G onwards I have NEVER mastered the backspace key. If you hold it to delete a few words it almost ALWAYS catches me out and starts deleting whole words and then whole lines (if you keep it pressed). I just want it to continue deleting one letter at a time until I remove my finger. If I want to delete huge blocks I would highlight them. :)
Is there ANY way to prevent this? My iPhone 5 is Jailbroken so I'm sure there must be a way but no matter how much searching I do I can't for the life of me find it.
