    That's just how it works on iOS.

    If you are jail broken, you can install the free tweak, SwipeSelection, from Cydia. With it, you can move your fingers across the virtual keyboard to move the cursor. This allows for precise placement, all without having to use the magnifying glass.

    But, if your iPad is stock, I'm afraid you'll have to use the magnifying glass...
