Increasing Font Size on iPhone

Are you struggling to read the text on your iPhone? Don’t worry, you can easily increase the font size to make it more readable. In this tutorial, we will show you how to adjust the font size on your iPhone using simple steps.

Step 1: Open Settings

To get started, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app. It has a gray icon with gears on it. Tap on it to open the Settings menu.

Step 2: Go to Display & Brightness

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find “Display & Brightness” and tap on it. This will open a new menu with various display settings.

Step 3: Tap on Text Size

Within the “Display & Brightness” menu, you will find an option called “Text Size”. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Adjust the Font Size

Now you will see a slider that allows you to adjust the font size. Slide it towards the right to increase the font size or towards the left to decrease it. As you slide, you will notice that the sample text above changes size accordingly.

Note: You can also use the “Aa” icons at the top of the screen to instantly increase or decrease font size by tapping on them. The “Aa” icon with a smaller “A” decreases font size, while the one with a larger “A” increases it.

Step 5: Test Different Sizes

Move the slider or tap on the “Aa” icons until you find a font size that suits your needs. Apple provides an interactive preview so that you can see the changes in real-time.

Step 6: Apply the New Font Size

Once you are satisfied with the font size, simply exit the Settings app by pressing the home button or swiping up from the bottom (on iPhone X and newer models). The new font size will be applied system-wide, affecting various apps and menus on your iPhone.

Note: Some apps may have their own font size settings that override the system-wide settings. In such cases, you need to adjust the font size within those specific apps.


Increasing the font size on your iPhone can significantly improve readability and reduce eye strain. By following these simple steps, you can easily adjust the font size to your liking. Experiment with different sizes until you find one that suits your needs best!

Remember: It’s important to find a balance between readability and aesthetics. While larger fonts make text easier to read, they may also affect layout and design elements in some apps.

  • Bold text: used to highlight important information
  • Underline text: used for emphasis or to draw attention to certain points
  • Subheaders

    : used to break down content into smaller sections for easy navigation

  • List items: used for step-by-step instructions or to present information in a structured manner
  • The combination of these elements makes this tutorial visually engaging and organized.
