    With the iPhone X, well, and others, too, is there a simple way to increase the font size throughout the device?


    This is a rather simple process on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. But, on the iOS range, it seems to be a little more difficult. Even the icon names don't seem to increase, by increasing the font size.


    Ideas...

    Sorry, I should have mentioned I was aware of this.
    But, to me, this doesn't affect the font size on icons, too, does it? Unless it is very slight...!

    Thanks

    To my eyes there is a difference in font size for icons, but it is very slight even with font set to max.

    It an issue apple needs to look into on the older devices you could increase the font size almost everywhere and use zoom display. I am sure they are aware and a future update will fix the issue.

    Even with iOS13, Apple still have not offered a one stop shop device 'resize'. I am back on iOS, and I am already missing that from Android (Note 10+).

    This feature only works for apps that take advantage of It. It is up to app developers to conform to this feature.

    I do find it odd, that Apple have not implemented and overall/everything option for font sizes. Weird that...

    Understood. Alas, on Android, you can set the entire device to 'larger font', irrespective of what developers do.
    That was more my point...

    I'm not sure if you have tried this, but if you haven't, go to Settings>Accessibility>Zoom. From there, there are many options available.

    I know this thread is old. However, I still do wish that Apple would release an option, similar to Android to increase font size for EVERYTHING at once, on the device.

    This evening, I set my font to the largest, without going to accessibilities. Let’s see how I do tomorrow.

    P.S. This thing is HUGE. LOL But, at least I do not need my readers on, to see emails. Text message have never been an issue.
