Do you think the font size in some apps on your iPhone is difficult to read and makes your eyes strain? Here is some good news for you. You can now adjust the font or text size of a specific app in iOS 15 without affecting the font size on other apps. For example, you can read your emails with larger text without any changes to the message text size.
In this post, we see how to change the font or text size of individual apps on your iPhone.
Add text size to Control Center
If you want to adjust the text or font size of an individual app, you need to add a Text Size control shortcut to Control Center first. Let’s see how to do it.
Go up Settings> Control Center on your iPhone.
On the Control Center screen, in the INCLUDED CONTROLS section, you will see the list of all apps or shortcuts that will appear in the Control Center.
By default, the text size control will not be available in that list. Then, go to the OTHER CONTROLS section and scroll down to find Text size . Then, tap the green + icon to add a shortcut for Text Size to Control Center.
Now, if you scroll up and see INCLUDED CONTROLS, you can find the Text Size option in that list. The shortcut for the text size can be seen from the control center of your iPhone.
Change the text or font size for any app on iPhone
Let’s say you are reading a long and interesting message on WhatsApp. And you think your reading experience will be much better if the text size can be increased. Let’s see how to quickly adjust the text size.
Swipe down from the top right corner to start the Control center . Then, tap the Text Size icon indicated by AA .
A new screen will appear with a large cursor. Below the slider, you will see two options: All apps And Alone app . In this example, you will see WhatsApp only.
Since you only want to increase the text size in WhatsApp, make sure the Blue slider is only on WhatsApp. If the All apps option is selected, the size of the text you change will be applied to all apps.
Now, to increase the text size for the app, move the cursor up using your finger. As you drag, you can preview your changes in the “Text Size” displayed above the slider so you can adjust the size to suit your needs. Likewise, if you want to reduce the size of the text, just move the slider down.
The text size is set to 100%. You can change the app text font from 80% to 310% based on visibility.
Once you have finished adjusting the slider, go to the app you were using (eg WhatsApp) and you will see the change in the text size. And the best part is that until you edit again, the text size changes will be reflected in the app.
Likewise, you can set different text sizes for individual apps on your iPhone. This is a really cool feature as it allows you to view different apps in different text sizes.
