Whether you have a serious problem with your eyesight or you just want to spend less time squinting, there are times when being able to increase the size of the text on your phone, tablet or laptop makes all the difference. Well, in most of the devices coming nowadays are equipped with a function that enlarges the text that makes it easier for you to read all the texts even from a far distance. Here is a simple step-by-step guide to making the texts larger on Android, iOS, and Computer. So, let’s jump straight to the main section.

Larger texts on Android

Android gives you the flexibility to increase the text size of only particular things or of the complete UI. So, we will cover both of them here one by one.

  1. To increase the text size

  • Go to the system settings, and head into the “Accessibility” section.
  • Find and tap on the “Font Size” option, then adjust the slider to make the font larger as much as you want.
  1. To make everything Larger

  • Go to the system settings, and head into the “Accessibility” section.
  • Tap on the “Display size” option (available on phones running 2016 on Android 7.0 Nougat release and higher).
  • Adjust your screen’s resolution to where you are comfortable.
  1. Activate Magnification Feature

This feature lets you magnify/zoom the area you tap on the screen to make it larger until you don’t lift your fingers up from the screen.

  • Go back to the “Accessibility” section.
  • Tap on the “Magnification” option.
  • You will have the choice of either magnifying with a triple-tap or using an “Accessibility” button. Tap on the feature you’d like to activate and turn it on.
  • When you have activated the accessibility button, you will see a small icon that looks like a person on the far right of your bottom icon bar. When you tap on that and then drag your finger around your screen, the contents will be considerably magnified.
  1. To increase text size in Chrome Browser

Chrome has its own text setting that increases the text size across the web. To increase the text size on Chrome, follow these steps.

  • Open Chrome, tap on the three-dot menu icon that sits in the upper-right corner, and select “Settings”.
  • Tap “Accessibility,” then adjust the “Text scaling” slider until the text is comfortable for you to read.

Larger texts on iOS

Like Android, iOS also allows you to increase the text size as per your desire. It also gives you a couple of options to choose from where you want to enlarge the texts.

  1. To increase the text size

  • Go to your system settings, and head on to the “Display & Brightness” section.
  • Tap the “Text Size” option, then adjust the slider to make the font larger as much as you want.
  • In case, if you want to make the text even larger than that slider will allow, go back to the main settings menu, tap “General” > “Accessibility” > “Larger text.” That will let you increase the text size using the same slider at the bottom of the screen.
  1. Activate Zoom Feature

On iOS, “Zoom” feature works in the same way as the “Magnification” feature works on the Android.

  • Go to the system settings, then head on to the “General” section and get into the Accessibility section.
  • Tap on “Zoom,” and toggle the feature on.
  • You will now have a window that you can move around the screen to magnify anything on that screen. Double-tap with three fingers to remove the window or bring it back again.

Larger texts on Computer

Most of the desktop browsers come with some keyboard shortcut to increase the text size on the go. However, these shortcuts differ on different browsers and on different Operating system. So, let’s check it out each of them one by one.
