Text size on an iPhone is often a problem for iPhone users that have trouble reading small text. The default size is often too small, and showing people how to increase the text size on an iPhone is something that I have had to do several times.

Our guide below will show you how to find the text size slider on the iPhone 7 so that you can make the text larger. While you may have adjusted the text size to something larger previously, there is an option in iOS 10 that lets you make the text very large.

How to Increase the Size of Text on an iPhone to a Very Large Size

The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus, in iOS 10.2. The result of completing these steps will be an iPhone that shows extremely big text in the places where this change is affected. This includes places such as Mail and Messages. If you find that selecting the largest text size results in even bigger text that you wanted, you can always return to this menu and select one of the smaller text option.

Step 1: Open the Settings menu.
