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.
Step 2: Touch the General option.
Step 3: Select the Accessibility option.
Step 4: Touch the Larger Text option.
Step 5: Tap the button to the right of Larger Accessibility Sizes, then move the slider to the right.
As mentioned earlier, this text size may be too big for realistic use on your device. If so, return to this menu and move the slider to the left and, if those text sizes are still too big, turn off the Larger Accessibility Sizes option, then adjust the slider again.
