Are you using an iPad Pro with a keyboard and wondering how to copy and paste text? Look no further – this guide will help you master this essential function in no time.

Firstly, any keyboard can be connected to your iPad in order to follow this guide, but for this demonstration, we’ll be using the Magic Keyboard by Apple. To begin, select the text you wish to copy by highlighting it all.

Once you have selected the text, in order to copy it using your keyboard, hold down the “command” key and at the same time click on the letter “c”. You will see the text being copied to your clipboard.

Now, to paste the copied text, hold down the “command” key and at the same time click on the letter “v”. This will paste the text in the desired location.

If you want to speed up this process, just quickly hold down the “command” key, click on the letter “c”, release both, and then do the same with the letter “v”.

If you’re wondering how to select all the text, that can be done by holding down the “command” key and at the same time clicking on the letter “a”.

For those using a Windows keyboard to copy and paste on an iPad, you will need to hold down either the “alt” key or the “Windows” key plus the letter “c”. This is because the “control” key has a different function on the Mac OS and iPad OS, respectively.

And that’s it! You’ve now learned how to copy and paste text using your iPad keyboard. Thanks for reading!
