I thought this was pure genius so I wanted to share it with you. I’m now in my 40s and a few months ago I started noticing that I was struggling to read text messages on my iPhone. I was having to progressively hold my phone farther and farther away until it came into focus.
Oh the joys of getting older!
However, I noticed a friend had rather large text on her phone the other night, so I had a little look in the settings and worked out what she had done.
These are instructions for an iPhone.
Go into Setting>General>Accessibility
The select Large Text and choose the font size you would like but don’t go to mad or anyone in a mile radius will be able to read your texts. I chose 20pt and it’s making the world of difference.
Hope this helps in some way.

Now I’m really depressed! I have definitely noticed that I struggle a bit when I read medicine bottles, I guess next it will be text messages.
That’s a good tip, and there are bigger ones as we get more and more visually challenged! lol
Just wish it worked on Whatsapp!
I’ve noticed recently that I too have to hold things further away to read them or even look over the top of my glasses. At least with my iphone there’s a fix…..
