Copying a link to the picture on iPhone/Safari broken?

Hi there,
My wife has been using the "press share/select size/long press to select all/copy/paste link into her favourite forum" process for years on her iPhone almost every day. Now it's broken - the link to the photo is shown but is not "selectable" in Safari, so can't be copied. Has something changed? She swears she didn't change anything on her iPhone (in fact she wouldn't know how).
It seems to work ok in Chrome on my Android tablet.

    Hi @marassa - I had no problems copying the link on my iPhone ... as soon as I tapped into the textbox that contained the link, the entire portion was selected and the “Copy” dialog opened up. I had some problems on my iPad, but i found if I took the “pin” that shows the start of the highlighted text, and just pressed/held on that, then the “Copy” dialog would open and i could copy everything just fine.

    In the future we’ll improve the copy link functionality so you can just press a button to copy the link, without needing to select it first. At this time I don’t have an ETA on when that will be available.

    Thank you for the reply @leftquark - must be different versions of Safari/iOS? Can't check right now. The problem was that there was no 'pin' at all.
    Is there a way to copy the picture URL in the iPhone app? Was not able to figure that out either...
