Here’s How to Zoom iPhone/iPad Display For Better Accessibility

iDevice has a lot of accessibility options. Unlike a few other operating systems, iOS and OS X have a very specific focus on creating truly accessible devices and software. Naturally, the accessibility features of iOS (and OS X) are almost always very useful and practical.

One of the more common features required by a lot of people dealing with visual problems is “zoom.” You can zoom in/out of apps on the iPhone/iPad very easily with a three-finger double-tap.

That’s it.

The Zoom feature works everywhere. It can be used to magnify icons on the homescreens, or used within apps to make text/images larger. The Zoom feature exclusively works with the triple-finger tap by default but you can actually change that.

For instance, if you want to enable Zoom with a HomeButton triple-click shortcut, all you do is:

Step #1. Go to Settings → General → Accessibility
