Making text larger on your iPhone

By October 24, 2011June 6th, 2022No Comments

If you’re getting up there in years like me, and find it hard to read small text without reading glasses, then you probably get annoyed with text messages on your phone. Here’s a tip for making it easier to read those text messages.

First, get an iPhone. The new one allows you to dictate text messages and even have them read to you. But, sometimes you want to read them yourself and the text is too small. You can fix this by going to SETTINGS > GENERAL (scroll down) > ACCESSIBILITY > LARGE TEXT and then set the text size to something like 20pt (or even larger). See the screenshots below.

This will make the text larger in your Calendar, Contacts, Mail, Messages and Notes apps. Those are the ones you tend to use most, right? So the other ones you’ll still need reading glasses for, but that’s okay. You should wear them once in awhile to let people know you’re distinguished.
