Still no copy from SMS

Today Apple released iOS 10.2 and sadly we are still stuck with this childish cartoon popup when you click on a word in a text message. I have had numerous people complain about this so I’m not the only one who thinks it turns the iPhone into a very expensive kid’s toy. You can’t copy part of a message so if you need to copy a verification code or address into another app – too bad. For a workaround look here.
