The redesigned Control Center has made quite a few functionalities more smooth-sailing. What has put CC in good stead is the ability to be completely customized to suit your needs better. Case in point, you can also add text shortcut to Control Center on your iOS device to quickly adjust font size right from CC without having to dive deep into the settings.
The apps that support Dynamic Type will automatically adjust to your preferred reading size; thereby improving your viewing experience. Let me show you how to easily fine tune font size on iOS 11 devices!
