Selecting url highlights it all but doesn’t bring up copy/paste or other choices in iOS

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.

Description of the issue:

iOS 13.4.1: tapping the url in top url bar highlights the entire long url but doesn’t trigger a menu that allows copy/paste etc. Tapping the url again only highlights part of the url but triggers the action menu copy/paste etc, however, it’s impractical to drag highlight the entire url.

A workaround is to use the share feature that opens a new email or text then copy/paste from that draft before discarding it.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. single tap the url in url address bar for the current viewed webpage
  2. note the entire url is selected (highlighted)
  3. note that no action menu appears, thereby preventing copying.

Expected result:
After highlighting (selecting) the url, the typical iOS menu should appear with copy/paste/cut options.
