Struggling to read messages on your phone?

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.

How to change font size on 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.

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.....

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!

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.
