    i have an ipad mini and lately the emails I type look like they have more spacing between the lines. Is there any way I can check to see the line spacing? While I'm at it, any way to change fonts? I'm using the email app that comes with the ipad. Thanks.

    The system font changed from Helvetica to San Francisco with iOS 9. The differences might also be noticeable in line spacing.

    System font and line spacing are default settings and can't be accessed or changed. The size of the font can be changed, but not the type of font your iPad uses.

    Well, there is one font change you can make. You can choose the Bold settings in Settings > Display & Brightness > Text. This won't change the font itself, but will make the lines slightly thicker.

    The iPad will reboot when you do this, so that it can change the font choice system wide. Apps that use fonts other than the system font will not be affected.

    For those still on iOS 8, this setting is in Settings > General > Accesibilty.
