Did anyone notice the marker button on the keyboard of the iPhone 6 Plus (picture)

The marker key on the left... I wonder what it's for?

The paste button is to the right of the scissors, I'm guessing it's to nightlight the text you want to cut, copy then paste.

The button next to the scissors is copy. If you look, it shows an "A" in a box and a copy of it behind it. Cut, copy and paste.

I see there is a box behind it, but couldn't tell what was on the box.

Looks like a glue bottle for pasting.

I think the A looks more like to copy text.

If those three buttons are indeed cut,copy,paste then that should make us a little more productive while typing.

I'm excited to see what other keyboards are available for us

They could've used that space for other new features. I preferred the cut/copy/paste pop up immediately after highlighting. It would have been nice to see italic, underline, font color, highlight, size, etc.

Yep. Better get the Plus. I don't think I can handle copying and pasting the old way any longer. :D
It's terrible. I'm a writer/editor/blogger and it is sooooooo frustrating the way it is now. Then again, I don't use the landscape keyboard either, so I'm probably going to have to get used to the entire thing...but I will!

contrarily, this has confirmed my need for the 4.7". I type in landscape pretty much exclusively, and these extra buttons just make it more difficult to reach the alphanumeric ones.

I actually think it may be a highlighter. Looks very similar to the highlighter icon in OSX's preview. I think paste is the icon to the right of cut. Only question is where is the copy button... there may not be a copy, just like there's no italics. maybe they let you choose from a selection of buttons to put there like customizing a toolbar in OS X.

I think the copy button changes to a paste button, how cool would that be?
