  • Publication number: 20190155503
    Abstract: The method for manipulating a cursor is performed at a portable multifunction device with one or more processors, memory, and a touch screen display. Initially, content of an electronic document is displayed on the display, where a cursor is displayed within the electronic document. Two substantially simultaneous touch inputs are then detected on the touch screen display, and preferably anywhere on the touch screen display. In response to detecting the two substantially simultaneous touch inputs, a portion of the content in the document closest to the cursor is selected, and the portion of the content is displayed as selected content.

  • Patent number: 10284812
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a display, one or more processors, and memory storing one or more programs configured to be executed by the one or more processors. The device can display a messaging user interface of a messaging application. The device can receive first data indicating that a live communication session that is available to three or more participants is active, and in response to receiving the first data, display a notification indicating that the live communication session is active. While displaying the notification indicating that the live communication session is active, the device can receive second data indicating that the live communication session between the three or more participants is no longer active. In response to receiving the second data, the device can cease to display the notification or update the notification to indicate that the live communication session is no longer active.

  • Patent number: 10282083
    Abstract: An electronic device with a display displays first text, having a first set of display property values, at a first location in a first user interface. The device detects an input corresponding to a request to transition from the first user interface to a second user interface, where the first text is displayed at a second location and has a second set of display property values. In response to detecting the input, the device transitions from the first user interface to the second user interface, the transition including display of continuous movement of the first text from the first location to the second location, and while displaying continuous movement of the first text from the first location to the second location, the device changes one or more display property values of the first text from the first set of display property values to the second set of display property values.

  • Patent number: 10254949
    Abstract: In a computer-implemented method, at a portable multifunction device with a touch screen display, a series of ratings indicia are displayed on the touch screen display, wherein the ratings indicia comprise a lowest rating indicia and one or more progressively higher rating indicia. A finger gesture by a user on one or more of the ratings indicia is detected, wherein the finger gesture contacts a last rating indicia immediately prior to breaking contact with the touch screen display. A rating corresponding to the last rating indicia contacted by the finger gesture is used as input to a function or application in the device.
