if you stretch out your arms and measure that length from fingertip to fingertip then that is usually equal to your height

The top row of letters on the WhatsApp keyboard can be held down to input the numbers above them.  Has that always been the case, I've literally only just noticed the little numbers.

Is the WhatsApp keyboard different from the default iOS keyboard, as if I hold down any key on the top row it just capitalises it with no number visible?

Or are you running Android?

Yeah was going to say the Android keyboard always has the numbers on the top row. One thing I miss on my iPhone from my Android days.

On the November 26th 1977, viewers of a news bulletin on the ITV region Southern Television were interrupted by a distorted voice, claiming to be from an alien, with a message to viewers hoping that our planet gives up weapons so that we could “achieve a higher state of evolution.” The six minute message was an elaborate hoax. It not only scared some viewers, it also baffled television executives and technicians.

On the Huawei, you just tap anywhere in the already-written text and brings up a movable cursor, which also magnifies as you move it around, which is great for middleg aged farts like me with fat fingers and deteriorating eyesight.

You can also change keyboard to include an always-visible number row.
None of this really matters in the end. None of it. Everything is utterly pointless. Even football. Nothing whatsoever really matters.

Indeed - and in the Anglican Cathedral, the first part to be fully complete was St Mary's Chapel. If you visit the Cathedral, you can see a scale model of the originally intended design for the whole Cathedral - personally I prefer the one we ended up with. Oh and apparently it's the largest single enclosed space in the whole of Europe. Apparently. I've not fact-checked that though.
