    Few weeks ago there was a new cursor positioning and word selecting method video demonstration by using the finger sliding over the keyboard.
    Well i can't find it anymore but i also want to know if there will be any changes in IOS6?

    That video you saw was someone's concept they were showing off. It was not an Apple/iOS 6 thing, just a private individual's neat idea.

    The cool part is that a developer took that concept and made a tweak for it. Now, those with jail broke iPads can get it free from Cydia. It's called SwipeSelection and yes, it's pretty awesome! :D

    I've not heard that Apple has any plans to implement this into the iOS...

    Just thought I would add, I was sitting next to a chap on the train this morning. Both of us were using our iPad's on the table.

    He obviously observed me using swipeselection as I was editing an email and was furiously trying to replicate the behaviour on his iPad!. After a few moments I explained to him that is was a tweak only available on jailbroken devices. A few minutes later he was committed to looking into jailbreaking his device this evening simply for that one feature! :D
