For most people, the font that Apple uses in iOS is just perfect, but some of you may think it's too big, while others with poor visibility have a hard time reading it. Whether you have difficulty seeing text on your iPhone or just want something different, there are three things you can do to customize the display of text.
There are three ways that text appears on an iPhone, only two of them can apply to you, depending on which iPhone model you own. To explain this better, let's go straight to the first tip that applies only to the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6 S 6 S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, XS Max, and probably the iPhone X R . The first tip does not work on the iPhone 5 S or SE, nor on the newer iPhone X or XS.
This guide assumes that you're using the latest version of iOS, which is iOS 1
Tip 1: Change the display zoom
When you first set up iOS on your iPhone, you are asked to choose between a "Standard" or "Zoomed" look. Most of you probably burned out with this option, so you probably set "default" as your display preference. If you want the screen text to be slightly larger, you can change it to Zoomed. This also increases the size of app icons, some buttons, some shapes, and other elements.
In the Settings app, choose Display and Brightness, and then tap View under Display Zoom section. Also, this only works for iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6 S 6 S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X p Max, and X R but not the iPhone 5 S or SE, nor the iPhone X or XS. If you do not see this section, you will not be able to customize it, so you'll want to go to Tip 2 and Tip 3.
Next, tap the "Zoomed" tab and then "Standard" to compare views of the home screen. Swipe left on the home screen, you can also compare the news app, followed by mail.
When you've made your selections, tap " Set". You will see a prompt informing you that "changing the display zoom restarts the iPhone." Select "Use Zoomed" or "Use Standard" to confirm and restart your iPhone. When it starts up again, you'll notice a lot of things that are larger or smaller in iOS, depending on your choice.
Tip # 2: Resize Text
To change the actual size of the text on your iPhone screen, open the "Display & Brightness" settings in the App Settings and tap "Text Size". You can also choose General, then Accessibility, then choose Larger Text.
Drag the slider at the bottom to change the font size which is also applied to applications that support Dynamic Type, such as Eg Twitter.
If you've increased the font size, but still too small are, you can do this it's even bigger. However, this is not possible via the "Display & Brightness" settings, but only via the "Accessibility" options. Once there, select "Larger Text" and then switch to "Larger Accessibility". Use the slider to increase the size even further.
