    Default For the record...

    ...I do NOT like the heavier font in iOS 10 b2.

    Sure, it's more legible, but it looks like it was drawn with crayon instead of the more elegant, refined look of 9.3. I'd like to revert, but I'll need 10 for wOS 3 anyway.

    Sometimes I'm lazy and don't want to reach for my glasses. Since I'm blind as a bat, I appreciate a more legible font.

    You can still change the font size to your liking

    Agreed. Progressive Presbyopia sucks the big one.

    Oh did the font change? Didn't even notice. Unlike when it was really hard to read on iOS 9.

    Most noticeable with the time/date on the lock screen. Bolder font.

    With iOS 10 and my iPad, Apple has moved the time and date on the lock screen to the left side of the screen. It looks good.

    Well, hopefully you made a 9.3.3 backup that's still intact.. I always suggest making one in iTunes before updating like that, as most folks have iCloud backup turned on, and I believe those get updated if backup runs after iOS update.. If u try to restore an iOS 10 backup it won't let u.. Then u get stuck setting up as new and losing any data u had on it like pics n vids etc.. If u do have an intact iOS 9 backup somewhere, or don't mind setting up as new, connect to PC, put in DFU mode, fire up iTunes and restore.. Let it do its thing, then restore the iOS 9 backup u hopefully have somewhere. If u don't have iOS 9 backup, setup as new.. Done... If u have pics/ vids on there u absolutely can't live without, you could hook to PC and drag them off just in case before u restore, so at least u have them, or turn on iCloud Photo Library and upload them all there(that's what I do now). But that requires adequate iCloud space and time to upload! I've got 50gb at this point and only 9gb left..it fills up quick.

    You can make it smaller or bigger, but you can't make it thinner and more elegant.

    BTDT, not recommended. Presbyopia hits most people around 40, so you don't have to get old, not to mention myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, et al.

    Ah, Presbyopia, once released, became a harsh mistress. What she did in Hades should have stayed in Hades, but who can blame the poor girl.
