How to Increase Text Size in Notes on the iPhone 5


While the screen on the iPhone 5 is very crisp and clear, it can be difficult for older eyes, or for people with less than 20/20 vision. But don’t let this factor deter you from purchasing or using an iPhone 5, because it is possible to increase the text size in various apps on the device.

This will not increase the size of the keys on the keyboard, nor will it increase the text size in every app on the phone, but many of the important apps that you use with regularity, such as Messages, Mail, Notes and Contacts, will show an increased text size.

Note that the text at the bottom of the screen indicates which apps will be affected by the text size change, but includes Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Messages and Notes.

 

This procedure will increase the size of the text in your Contacts app as well. But you can also do some other things to improve the usability of the Contacts app, such as changing the sort order of your contacts. This is beneficial if your method for storing contacts goes against the default sorting methods of the iPhone 5.
