    The iPhone 13 comes with several cool features including FaceTime, Siri, and a great camera especially after the release of iOS15. Then there are some iPhone 13 hidden features that many of us are not aware, but which can really make your job easier. One of them is the iPhone 13 hidden trackpad. This hidden feature makes it pretty easy to delete, rewrite or edit text especially when you're writing a long text message or an email. You will need your finger to move the cursor and edit any part of the text. The iPhone 13 trackpad comes with a magnifying bubble that enlarges the text underneath your fingertip as you move the cursor.
