Your iPhone has a setting that allows you to change the font size on your iPhone. Boosting the font size can make text on your iPhone easier to read. This is a great option for anyone who wears glasses or generally has a hard time reading text on the iPhone. 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 iPhone:

  1. From the home screen, tap Settings.

  2. Tap Accessibility.
