iOS: Enlarging (Some) Tiny Text

If you have trouble reading the small text on your iOS device, you can enlarge it, at least in some helpful locations. To configure the size, go to Settings> General> Accessibility. What you'll want to change is (unsurprisingly) labeled Large Text.

Once you select that, you'll be given a bunch of different font sizes to choose from, so pick the one that blows your skirt up.

As I noted, this won't change all of the text everywhere, but for example, it will enlarge calendar event details:

Your list of contacts:

And text messages (both the list of them and each individual message):

It'll also affect the text size when you're viewing or composing an email and the size of the font in the Notes app.

I find larger iOS fonts so much easier to read, especially on my iPhone, and yet I must confess that I leave this setting off anyway. It's probably vanity. Don't be like me, kids.
