Display Zoom was launched as a new feature in iPhone 6 & iPhone 6S. You can find this view under Display & Brightness head in your settings. This feature has been specifically designed for people having difficulty in reading small fonts on the screen.
What is Display Zoom?
If you look at the left side of above photo, this is how an iPhone’s screen looks like when Display Zoom is off. Once you switch on this feature, it looks like right half of the image. As you can see, the padding between the icons is lesser in Display Zoom mode. Also, the icons are a bit larger.
Using Display Zoom
- Go to Settings and tap on Display & Brightness.
- Under the Display Zoon head, tap on View.
- You will see 2 options: Standard & Zoomed.
- If you tap on Zoomed, Display Zoom mode is ON. If you tap on Standard, it is turned off.
- While you are switching Display Zoom mode ON or OFF, you will be shown how your iPhone’s screen will look like.
Benefits & Conclusion
This feature is way-out for iPhone users finding it difficult to read small fonts on an iPhone’s screen. Also, it removes the need for installing a third-party app to do the same work. Though this feature was launched way back in 2014 with the launch of iPhone 6 (September 19th, 2017), many users are not aware of the existence of such a feature. So, if someone has problems reading text on their iPhones, make sure that you tell them about this feature.
