How Can I See My Copy/Paste History on iPhone

Have you ever wanted to access your clipboard history on your iPhone? Well, here are the best methods to see your recent copied content.

What is the Clipboard on iPhone?

The clipboard is one of the most useful utilities in any operating system and iOS is no exception. Everything you copy on your iPhone ends up in the Clipboard. It’s a virtual memory that can temporarily hold the copied content. Meaning the content will be gone after you restart the phone.

Whenever you copy a piece of text on your phone, you’re using its Clipboard functionality. But the iPhone can only dedicate this memory to one piece of data at a time. Once you copy or cut anything for the second time, the old content will be erased. And that’s why you can’t see your recent copy-paste history except the last one unless you’ve already installed a third-party app.

How to See My Copy Paste History Using a Third Party App?

There are plenty of apps in the App Store you can install to enhance your copy/paste functionality on your iPhone. In this article, I’m going to name a few of them.

1. Paste

A few years back, Paste was only available on Mac. Later the developers decided to release the iOS version and it was good news for its current users to use the app on iPhone.

The main feature of Paste is you can see the clipboard history. So if you copied something by mistake while something else still had to be pasted, you can easily retrieve the previous item. The app remembers everything you copy. This way you can copy and paste pieces of text, images, graphs, and even code via the app.
