    Default in iphone keyboard, where is the DEL key to remove the next character ?

    I don't mean the backspace key which remocves the previous letter.

    Also how would you get the cursor to the middle character of a word ?

    whenever i touch the screen on a word, it either points to the first or last letter of that word.

    Don't know about a delete key but to navigate to a middle of a word just hold your finger on the screen until a magnifying glass appears on screen then move to desired location for editing. Here's a screenshot.

    No Delete key. Only backspace.

    Delete key would be nice, but all that we have is backspace.

    Apple doesn't "do" Delete keys. Even macs with the Apple keyboard don't have one. Although it is supported in the software if you are using a keyboard that has a Delete key (fn + backspace also works on an Apple keyboard). I'm guessing that iOS is the same in that if you are using an external keyboard then Delete would be supported.

    Brace yourselves...the "delete key" is about to become the new "LED notification".
