iOS: Adjusting the font

iOS 7 allows you to adjust the font size for any app that supports Dynamic Type. For example, Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Phone, and Notes support Dynamic Type in iOS 7.

To adjust the font size, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Text Size.
  2. Drag the slider to the preferred size. The text on the screen will adjust as you move the slider.

To enable additional, larger font sizes, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Type.
  2. Turn on Larger Dynamic Type.

Apps must support Dynamic Type to correctly show all font sizes in iOS 7.

From Settings > General > Accessibility, you can also turn on Bold Text, Increase Contrast, and Invert Colors.
