How to Turn On Larger Type

  • First open Settings
  • Click “General”
  • Click “Accessibility”
  • Click “Larger Type”
  • Turn on “Larger Dynamic Type”
  • Drag the slider to desired font size

Good to Know

This setting works on the iPad as well. You may also note that there is another option in the Settings -> General menu called “Text Size”. I’m not sure how the two options influence each other, so you might need to play with it a little.

Thank You!

      You’re very welcome, thanks for writing in! My mother-in-law was tickled pink when I did this to her phone, so I hoped others would like this too.
