Since our phones have become such an important part of daily life, it’s critical to be able to consume the content that we find on the device.
Whether it’s news, information from family and friends, or simply entertainment, the iPhone experience is affected dramatically by whether or not it’s comfortable to use the device.
One reason why it might be uncomfortable is if you need to squint to read the screen content. In fact, it’s possible that the text is too small to read even when you do that.
Fortunately, our guide bellow will show you how to find and use the larger text iPhone setting to make your iPhone content much bigger and more comfortable to read.

The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 13 in the iOS 16 operating system.
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Scroll down and select the Accessibility option.
Step 3: Choose the Display & Text Size menu.
Step 4: Touch the Larger Text button.
Step 5: Drag the slider to the right at the bottom of the screen.
You can also enable the Larger Accessibility Sizes option if the slider isn’t making the text big enough.
Now that you know how to enable the larger text iPhone 13 setting, you can use this method to adjust the size of your text until it’s large enough for you to read comfortably.
Not every app on your iPhone will be affected by the increase in text size created by this option. Many games and other third-party apps set the text size on the screen themselves.
You may be able to find an option in that specific app’s Settings menu that lets you adjust screen content size, but the process of doing that can vary from app to app, if it’s available at all.
More Information About Making the iPhone Screen Easier to Read
While the larger text iPhone option in the section above can have a pretty large effect on the way things look, there are some other options you can try in an effort to improve your screen’s readability.
If your iPhone screen is hard to read, there are several things you can try:
- Adjust the brightness – Go to Settings > Display & Brightness and move the slider right or left to increase or decrease the brightness of your screen.
- Increase the text size – Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Text Size and adjust the slider to make your screen text larger.
- Use the “bold text” feature – Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Bold Text, and turn on the feature to make the text larger and darker.
- Use the “dark mode” feature – Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Dark Mode, and turn on that feature to see if that color scheme improves content readability.
- Use a screen protector – You can purchase and add a screen protector to your iPhone to reduce physical damage that might make the screen more difficult to read
- Check the phone’s color filters – Go to Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size > Color Filters. There you can cycle between different color filters that might make your screen more readable.
The exact options that work for everyone may be different, so it’s useful to try several of these settings until you find something that makes your iPhone experience a bit more enjoyable.
