  1. Now go to Your ViewController.m and write this code in Your Button Action.

– (IBAction)buttonAction:(id)sender {


    NSString *copyiedString = self.textView.text;

    UIPasteboard *pasteBoard = [UIPasteboard generalPasteboard];

    pasteBoard.string = copyiedString;


Now run the code and see the desired output. You can download the whole source code from   here.
