Do you know why older people take longer to wear glasses now? Because at possibility to zoom in on the screens of the devices we use, the difficulty of reading is less obvious than before. So let’s take a look at how to increase the text size on all the devices we use so that we can read it more comfortably.

How to adjust the text size on our iPhone or iPad

On our iPhone or iPad, we have several options to vary the size of the text and make it more readable. In the first place, the size of the text itself and secondly whether the text is displayed in bold.

  1. We open the app Adjustments on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. We entered Screen and brightness.
  3. If we wish we activate Bold text.
  4. We entered Text size.
  5. We adjust with the slider to vary the font size.

In addition, on the iPad, you can enlarge screen icons Departure. We are doing it:

  1. We open the app Adjustments on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. We entered Docking screen and docking station.
  3. We mark Bigger.

I must say that some apps don’t support resizing dynamic text, in which case it is best to contact the developer directly to update the application.

How to adjust the text size on our Apple Watch

On the Apple Watch, which is characterized by a particularly small text, we can also increase its size. We can do this from our linked iPhone or from the same watch:

  1. We open the app Adjustments on our Apple Watch.
  2. We entered Screen and brightness.
  3. If we wish we activate Bold.
  4. We entered Text size.
  5. Press the “Aa” to the right or left to vary the font size.

If we want to adjust it from our iPhone the steps are very similar:

  1. We open the app Watch on our iPhone.
  2. We entered Screen and brightness.
  3. If we wish we activate Bold text.
  4. We adjust with the slider to vary the font size.

How to adjust the text size on our Mac

Finally, we can also adjust the text size on our Mac. Unlike the iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, what we will adjust on our Mac is the size of the entire interface. This parameter therefore includes buttons, menus, windows, etc. The steps are as follows:

  1. In the Apple menu () we choose System Preferences.
  2. We entered Screens.
  3. We enter the tab screen.
  4. We mark Tight.
  5. We select one of the sizes that the system offers us.

On the Mac, with which we can work with external screens and monitors, we can adjust the size of the interface elements individually for each of them. Thanks to this versatility, and given the differences in resolution of the different monitors, we will be able to see the texts and the interface at the size we want in each of them.

Without a doubt, being able to adjust the size of the texts on our devices is an important advantage, for some it can be a comfort, for others a necessity. This is one of the many facets in which we see how Apple devotes great dedication to making the operating systems it creates accessible to everyone.
