Want to customize the text size of an app without changing the rest of the text on your iPhone or iPad? You can do this by following a few simple steps.
From the release of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, you can choose a custom text size for different applications on your iPhone and iPad to make reading content easier. The choice “Text size” for Control centre allows you make the text size smaller or larger in each application to fit the text on the screen.
Once you set a standard font size on your iPhone or iPad, applies to Notes, Calendar information, Contacts, SOCIAL MEDIA updates and almost every other application. However, you can read comfortably emails in larger text or see more tweets on Twitter, thanks to the new "Text Size" option.
How to add the Text Size option to Control Center
First, you need to add the Text size shortcut icon in the Control Center so that you have quick access in it while using any application on your iPhone or iPad.
Open the app Settings on your iPhone and select "Control centre".
Make it scroll down in unit “More controls” until you see the option “Text size”. Then select the green button "Plus" to add it to the list “Included controls”.
You can drag the option "Text size" to change its order.
After that, the button "Text size" will be displayed when you open the Control Center.
How to enable custom text size for specific applications
Follow the procedure above: First open the application and then use the shortcut "Text Size" from the Control Center.
After adding the "Text Size" toggle, you can start increasing or decreasing the text size in different applications on your iPhone or iPad. You can open the Control Center using one of these methods, depending on the model:
- iPhone X or later: Swipe down from the top right of the screen.
- iPhone SE and iPhone 8 or earlier: Swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
- iPad mini 4 or later, iPad Air 2 or later, iPad 5th generation or newer, and all iPad Pros: Swipe down from the top right of the screen.
First, open the application for which you want to adjust the text size. Then open Control Center on your iPhone screen and press, double-tap or hold "AA" to display the text size slider.
By default, the Text Size control sets a standard text size for all applications by default and shows you a six-level slider to adjust the text size. It also shows the text size you have configured for your device.
To change the text size of the application you have opened, first select the stacked button on the left, which displays the name of the application below it. You will see that the slider displays eleven levels instead of six when selecting the button for the corresponding application.
To increase the text size of the application, hold down and slide your finger up along the slider or tap the level you want to select.
Similarly, you can hold and slide your finger down to reduce the text size for that application.
Note: For Safari, Chrome or Edge on iPhone or iPad, you should use the built-in option in these browsers to change the text size for all websites.
That's it! Now you can enjoy more text on iPhone or iPad for reading email, social media updates and more without bothering your eyes.
