The Worst Feature in iOS 16

iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 are pretty great updates, but there's one feature that makes me want to throw my device through the nearest wall, and it's this modal alert you get whenever are potentially about to paste something from one app to another.

I can appreciate that users may not want apps to read their clipboard randomly, but this feels like the worst of Windows Vista-style handholding to me. This makes me feel like I'm using a toy for children rather than a device built to help me get work done, and I sincerely hope this is rethought before the public release this fall.
