I am designing a mobile app. One of the screens contains a list. There are options for each list element such as view details, edit, delete, ...

For Android there is the more options icon (three vertical dots) that I can put on each list element. Tapping on the icon would open a little context menu with a list of options.

What is the appropriate way to implement list element options in iOS?

Tapping the list element itself is already occupied with our primary use case (mark/flag).

Many iOS application use 3 horizontal dots on the top right to indicate more options.
