This is how your iPhone adjust text size

Apple has built in to change the iPhone text size in iOS. This is important because it means you don’t have to adjust the size of the letters in each app. All apps that support Apple’s “Dynamic Text” are automatically updated as you complete the steps below.

Adjust iPhone text size

This is how you change the iPhone text size

  1. Open the Settings app;
  2. Go to ‘Display and Brightness’;
  3. Tap on ‘Text size’;
  4. Move the bar at the bottom of the screen to choose the correct format.

Do you also want to make the text bold? Then go back one step to ‘Display and brightness’. Move the switch at ‘Bold text’ so that the box turns green.

All apps that Apple has created itself will immediately adjust the text format. The results vary with third-party apps. Instagram, for example, has difficulty filling the screen in a logical way with larger letters, so that they are a bit close together.

Moreover, Apple technology is not only limited to apps. Html pages can also choose to support the function. Very handy if you also use the internet browser of your iPhone or iPad intensively.
