Is there any way to increase the size of the text on the lock screen notifications when they pop up? (Also the Banners notifs at the top of the page) I've increased the size of the text under display and brightness but it does nothing for the lock screen notifications/banners it seems. With contact lenses it's really hard to read it now. Just curious...

I don't think you can change the text size, but you can use bold text and that will show up in notifications. You can give that a try to see if it helps see your messages.

Ok, I do have the bold set.

But here is what I mean.....

The text looks pretty large to me in that screen shot. You want it larger than that?

The first one, the message on the top is how every notification looked before. Compared to the bottom one… Why are they different! I find that bottom line quite small when I have contacts in I have to hold it at arms length read it. Not all of us are 20 anymore.

Yeah I tried that it doesn't affect that I've noticed.

But it seems that tweet notifications from my news sites are large and others are small. So I just find that strange. It also doesn't make sense that the notifs are a mix of big and small...

I can't be the only one to notice this? I get a lot of notifications from Twitter with 17,000 followers so I notice right away if something is weird.

Oh and the other thing I noticed is that in Facebook if you posted a status you can't edit any mistakes it won't let you now, but they'll probably fix that

I don't see anyone else with this problem. I'm still on 10.1.1. But you might try Reset All Settings.
Reset All Settings
Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.
This fixes a lot of issues.

Worked before 10.2, worked in 10.2, and still working fine in 10.2 beta. Try either hard resetting or reinstalling Facebook.

Will do. Also why does Facebook always have to have these massive 150 MB updates every week and for messenger also it really starts to bog down an iPhone, especially an older one

On second though I think I will wait until after the holidays to reinstall Facebook. The last time I did this I had to go get my iPhone unjammed at an electronics repair place. FB really seems to bog down the older iPhone 5C. True since iOS 10.1.1 and now 10.2 it has been faster and better, I just don't want to risk it right now.

Sounds like Santa needs to bring you a new iPhone. Hoping he sends one your way. :)

Haha don't want one yet although I could get a 6S or an SE for $0 right now. I just pu t a new battery in the 5C this fall and am just going to run it flat out now until it can't be used anymore.

If it does jam again I am not going to bother repairing it, although I attribute that jam to ios10, but the last 2 updates were perfect and made it faster.

Just got a new 5G wifi/router and am clocking a decent 8 mbps speed off wifi. More than enough....

Only 8mbps? We're getting a tad over 50 mbps, which is a little slow for us. But it is also wifi, which technically has more to do with an internet service provider and not a cell carrier.

My Facebook app is letting me edit now.

And we pay way too much here for Internet. My LTE is around 25 Mbps which is pretty blazing fast as it is.
