It’s 2015 and Apple finally decided to revolutionize how we highlight text on the new iPhone 6S.

Thanks to a recent video posted to Twitter by TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino, we see how 3D Touch transforms the way we highlight text, something that was usually a pain in earlier models of the phone.

As you can see in the video, slightly holding down on your screen give users the ability to move the cursor around effortlessly back and forth. If you press the screen a little harder, you can easily highlight text by moving your finger around.

If this doesn’t give you a reason to upgrade to the iPhone 6S, I don’t know what will.
