The clipboard is a handy feature that allows you to copy text, images and other items and then paste them wherever you want. It’s something that is found on most smartphones and laptops. The iPhone is no different and it has its own built-in clipboard that is very useful for anyone who uses their phone for their job.

However, the clipboard on the iPhone is a little different to that of other devices. For one thing, it is not viewable on the device itself. This can be frustrating if you need to quickly access a certain piece of information but don’t have the time to wait for it to save. There are a few workarounds to this problem though that can allow you to easily see and use your iPhone’s clipboard.

Luckily, there are several apps that can help you to get around this issue and enable you to access your iPhone’s clipboard whenever you need it. One of the most popular is Onboard, which can preserve multiple previous clipboards for you so that you can instantly find and paste any item that you’ve copied in the past.

The app is free to download but it does have ads and requires you to give it access to your system data in order to function. Another good option is Gladys, which will allow you to store up to 10 items in your clipboard at a time. It costs a one-time fee to use but it is worth it for anyone who frequently needs to access their clipboard.
