iPhone trick: Adjust font size for just one app

If you use the Apple iPhone with iOS 15 or a newer operating system, you have the option of individually adjusting the font size in apps. The way to this goal is via the control center, which you call up by swiping down from the top right edge of the screen. Use the text size symbol stored there (twice the letter A) to set the size of the letters larger or smaller either in the currently open or in all apps. If the text size icon is not in the control center? No problem, below I'll show you how to place it there!

iPhone: Set text size as an option in the control center

In order to be able to adjust the text size via the control center on the Apple iPhone from iOS 15, you need the corresponding symbol there. You create this by making the necessary settings. Accordingly, you first open the iOS settings on the iPhone. There you tap on the item Control Center (can also be found quickly via the search bar). In the overview called up in this way, you now select the line “Text size” from the lower list “Other controls”. Just tap the green circle with the plus (+) inside it and the font size adjustment option will be added.

Select Settings -> Control Center on Apple iPhone to add Text Size option. You can then adjust the app font size individually without the setting being adopted system-wide.

Customize the font size of an iOS app: Here's how!

Now you can customize the font in each app. To do this, open the program in question (such as Notes, Safari, Messages, Reminders, Weather, Photos, Sir Apfelot, or any other) and then swipe down from the top-right corner with one finger. In the control center you will now find the tile with the double A. Tap on it and a slider for the text size will appear. Below you can choose whether the set font size should only affect the app open in the background or whether it should be applied to all apps. Have fun trying!

If the Sir Apfelot app is open in the background, the text size adjustment looks like this. With the lower slider you decide whether the changes should be applied individually or for all apps.
