iOS 10 has brought some interesting features, which had been missing for a long time and were certainly on the wishlists of many iPhone users– including me. The ability to clear all notifications at one go using 3D Touch, enable/disable individual read receipts in Messages app, and Safari Split-View is really awesome.
One feature that has instantly attracted my attention is hidden under Accessibility called Magnifier. It allows you to use your iPhone or iPad camera as magnifying glass in order to let you read printed text a lot easily. Here is how it works:
How to Enable and Use Magnifier Feature in iOS 10 on Your iPhone or iPad
Step #1. First of all, you will need to launch Settings app on your iPhone/iPad → Next up, tap on General.
Step #2. Now, you have to tap on Accessibility.
Step #3. Under Vision, tap on Magnifier.
Step #4. Finally, you will have to turn on the switch next to Magnifier.

Step #1. Next up, you need to triple-click the Home button. This action will open the camera with magnified effect.
Step #2. There you are! Now, you will need to use the camera of your device to read the text. There is also an option to adjust the magnifier. Simply drag the button from left to right to increase the text size and drag it towards left to decrease the same.
#1. Tap on the electric icon at the bottom left corner to turn on the torch.
#2. If you want to use the different color, tap on the icon from the bottom right corner.
#3. You can adjust the contrast by dragging the buttons.
#4. You can inverse the colors and besides, there are options to select other colors such as Yellow/Blue, Greyscale, Yellow/Black and Red/Black. Simply swipe right to choose your preferred color combination.
That’s all there is to it!
It’s indeed a very handy feature for those who have difficulty in reading the text, isn’t it.
The public beta of iOS 10 is set to arrive in July. It is to be launched publicly this fall.
