Remove the “copy” functionality on mobile Safari

If you want to disable the ‘Cut / Copy / Paste’ invoked by holding down on an element in Safari on the iPhone or iPad you can use the CSS user-select

-webkit-user-select: none;

However, as stressed by Apple, this should only be disabled on a per element basis, and never applied to the whole document.


To disabled selection on elements in every browsers:

user-select: none;
-moz-user-select: none;
-webkit-user-select: none;
-ms-user-select: none;

Simple and easy.
