iPhone is getting bigger and bigger, but this does not mean that text and UI elements are bigger. In reality, iPhone’s default settings for text are a bit too small and difficult to read. Fortunately, there are a few tips you can use to make things much easier on the eyes.
In this guide, we will walk you through to make iPhone or iPad display easier on your eyes. Before we begin, we recommend you update your device to iOS 10 or later because some of below-mentioned features are exclusively available for iOS 10.
Increase text size
If you have problems reading or viewing texts or UI elements on your iPhone or iPad, the first step is to increase text size. To do this, all you need to do is to head to Settings > Display & Brightness > Text and drag the slider to the right to increase the text size.
Once you are done, any app that supports iOS’s Dynamic Type will adjust to your preferred reading size. Some apps that support Dynamic Type include Facebook, Facebook Messenger and more
Display Zoom is a great feature for bigger iPhone models like iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 7 or 7 Plus. Basically, the feature will bring the iPhone 5s screen size to the iPhone 6 screen. This means that you will see a lot less, but much bigger. To enable this feature, you can head to Settings from your home screen, tap Display and Brightness > Display Zoom.
Make text bold
If the above-mentioned methods fail to work for you, you can turn on Bold settings on your iPhone. To do this, you simply need to launch the Settings app from your home screen and select Display and Brightness and turn it on
Virtual magnifying glass mode
iOS includes a nice virtual magnifying mode in the Accessibility settings. Basically, the mode allows you to zoom into a specific part of the screen. To access this mode, you simply need to go to Settings, scroll down to General and tap on it. Once you are in, tap on Accessibility and tap on Zoom.
You now need to double tap with three fingers on your screen to enter the mode. Basically, you will get a floating window on the screen, and you can use the handle to make things bigger.
Night Shift is a great feature added to iOS 9.3 and it changes the iPhone or iPad screen to a warner hue for easy nighttime reading. If you have trouble reading text on your iPhone, yellowish screen will do the thing. To enable Night Shift mode, go to Settings > Display and Brightness and select Night Shift.
