How to Change the Display Zoom on the iPhone 6 Plus

The iPhone 6 Plus has the biggest screen that has ever been included on an iPhone.

This bigger screen makes it easier to read Web pages in the Safari browser, and it means that videos that you watch on the device will be larger.

The iPhone 6 Plus also has an option that allows you to choose the level of zoom that will be applied to everything that you view on your screen.

One other iPhone display option called True Tone can be really useful. Our true tone iPhone meaning article can help to explain more about it.

The Display Zoom menu gives you two different options for how large your device controls appear on your screen – Standard and Zoomed. When you first set up your device, you were asked to select one of these options. However, you are not locked into this choice for the entire time that you have your device. Our tutorial below will show you how to change the Display Zoom setting on your iPhone if you want to test out the other option.

If you’ve been having trouble with the zoom on your watch, too, then read more here about how to unzoom the Apple Watch face.
