Hi,

Is it possible to make the letters below each app bigger so it's easier on the eyes? Also, is there a way to make the font sizes bigger inside Safari?
I did go to settings/general and found a way to increase font sizes but it's only for contacts, mails, etc. I also found the triple finger double tap trick works
for safari but just wonder if there are other ways.

Thank you.

There's no other way to increase the font, sorry, other than the ways you've mentioned.

However, do you know about the Reader option in Safari? On most web sites, in Safari, after it's finished loading, there'll be a dark gray box (titled Reader) in the URL address field. If you press on it, a pop-up will appear that is basically just text. Also within that pop-up is the ability to make the text (in that pop-up only) larger or smaller.

I find that it makes reading web sites in Safari much easier. Of course, and as always, YMMV.

I never noticed the text size option in Reader mode. Thanks!

@OP. It is not necessary to use the three finger tap (Accessibility Zoom mode) in Safari to enlarge the screen. You can use the pinch gesture in Safari to magnify in a webpage without having to zoom the entire screen. Also, a quick double tap on a column of text will zoom in so that the column fills a larger part of the screen. Double tap it again to return to full page view.

Rotating to landscap mode is also a quick trick to get slightly larger text.
