We see iPhone and iPad 'hacks' every week here at at Creative Bloq, and most of the time they're not all that impressive (yes, we know we can type on our iPad). Often it's simply an iOS feature that the internet hasn't fully discovered yet – as is the case here. But even if it's been around for a while, this one still feels delightfully futuristic. 

A TikTok user has discovered that Universal Clipboard + finger gestures = Minority Report-level coolness. And if that sentence makes no sense to you, don't worry – the explanation is coming. (Want to experience the hack for yourself? Check out today's best iPad Pro deals).
