Your iPad has a setting that allows you to change the font size on your iPad. Boosting the font size can make text on your iPad easier to read. This is a great option for anyone who wears glasses or generally has a hard time reading text on the iPad. The font size setting doesn’t apply to all applications, but all Apple applications (like Mail, etc.) are supported.

Here’s how to change the font size on your iPad:

  1. From the home screen, tap Settings.

  2. Tap Accessibility.

  3. Tap Display & Text Size.
