How To Increase Your iPhone’s Text Size

The iPhone’s user interface is pretty easy to get along with — provided you can see it. Unfortunately, not everyone has the perfect vision required to see the diminutive text on their iPhone’s screen. Luckily, for those of us who have to squint ever time they want to look up a calendar entry or type something into Notepad, increasing the text size used in many of iOS’s core applications is only a few swipes away.
Let’s get started!

1. Settings

Navigate to your Settings menu and open it. Scroll down until you see the options to tinker with your General settings. Tap that bad boy open.

2. Access Accessibility

To change the size of the fonts used on your iPhone, you’ll need to open up the device’s Accessibility options.

3. Embiggen

With your iPhone’s Accessibility options pane now open, select Large Text.

4. Pick a Font Size

Your iPhone supports fonts up to 56 points in size. Choose the size that is most comfortable for you.

5. Type Like a Giant

Suddenly, your letters are HUGE! Your new, larger font should now be active in your Note, calendar, mail, and text messages apps, as well as in third-party applications that support iOS’s accessibility functionality. Nice!
