As we are starting this transition, we wanted to ensure the platform was stable. This is only the beginning, we are going to continue to roll out new features of the platform so please stay tuned! The Apple Support Communities crew is on it!
Matthew, thanks for your support and confidence.

Yes, I get the same on Safari. Message says something like 'your device can post replies, no editing'.
Interestingly, using iCab set to be recognised as desktop Safari, the edit box comes up, but no keyboard appears!

Not trying to be a pest about it, but it's almost December and still no Edit functionality on the iPad.
Ability to edit the posts is dearly missed, especially on a device with auto-correction. At this point it would be nice to see even a very simplified form of the Mac edit options. I would be happy with just the ability to correct typos.

Yes, there are all sorts of other issues as well (problems with the Bookmark This dialog window, inability to customize Your View because you can't drag the elements, etc). I was pleading for the text Edit ability as the most critical and the most essential omission.
Could someone with the appropriate privileges, please raise the issue (again?) with the ASC management?

It has been mentioned (again) in another place recently...
In the meantime try Atomic Web Browser. Apart from an irritating habit of creating two caps at the start of a new sentence it allows full editing features in ASC on an iOS device.

Will give it a try. Thanks.
Hmmm, well the quoting certainly works on Atomic. After I post this, I'll see if editing works.
Update: editing works too. Now I'll try iCab, my favourite iPad browser.
Update2: editing works in iCab too.

Quoting works in iCab too.
So, it's a Safari thing then as the issue has been resolved with iCab and Atomic over the last few updates.
A bit embarrassing then, isn't it?

Try editing a second time in iCab. Works for some, apparently, but not for me. Atomic's the only one that works reliably, 100% of the time. But that double caps thing bugs the $&@#% out of me, and iCab does the same thing too, so I still use Safari.
Many regulars have long laundry lists of needed changes here, but there haven't been any changes in a long time. I, for one, have more or less given up.
