Change the Mail Font Size on iPhone
The font size of mail messages can appear really small on the iPhone screen. Depending on the quality of your eyesight you can increase the text size considerably by adjusting the minimum displayed font size within Mail settings:
- Tap on “Settings” and tap on “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”
- Scroll down to and tap on “Minimize Font Size”
- Choose either a larger or smaller font
The default setting is “Medium” and “Large” is a reasonable size if your vision is mildly impaired or you just forgot your glasses somewhere. Extra Large and Giant are accurate descriptions of their accompanying text sizes, you will want to take a look at just how big they are before using them as primary settings.
A temporary adjustment to text size can also be done with webpages within Safari by using Reader on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod screen.
