Quick Way to Enlarge iPhone’s Emails



Someone (Dave) asked me how to make the text bigger on his iPhone, specifically for emails. I told him how to do it: Settings, then Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then scroll way do to the Mail section, then change the Minimum Font Size. That works, and Dave’s happy, so that is that. Except that I found another way to do it.

Here’s a picture of a “typical” email message, viewed on my iPhone. Definitely readable, though a little small after a long day. (If it looks a little blurry that’s the screen-shot’s fault, not the iPhone’s. It’s sharp as a tack on the iPhone.)

Here’s the same email, with the iPhone turned sideways. I knew it would rotate but I didn’t know it would enlarge. But, as you can see, it does. How handy, especially for those occasional times when your eyes are tired. Turn it back the other way and you’re back to normal. Well, maybe YOU’RE not. But your email font size is.

Give it a try. Free, and easily worth twice as much.
