How To Make Text Larger For Specific Apps In iOS 16

Aside from the global setting to change the text larger on your device, you can actually change the text size in each app according to your preference in iOS 16. Any app that can be found on your device can be added to this setting so that it will have texts slightly bigger or smaller than others. 

Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 5 minutes

People who might have sight issues or those who can’t easily read small texts might find this setting useful. There might be an app that you often use but can’t read the words and labels properly because they’re too small. While you can fix that by changing the general text size of your device, doing so will also affect the appearance of other apps. 

Your option is to change the text size for that specific app and you can do that easily. Here’s how it’s done: 

  1. Go back to the Home Screen and tap Settings.

    Doing so will open the Settings app which allows you to change some features in your iPhone. 

  2. Scroll down a bit and tap Accessibility.

    This will bring you to the screen with a lot of accessibility settings you can change to make your device work the way you want. 

  3. Scroll down and tap Per-App Settings.

    You will have to scroll all the way down to find it. 

  4. On the next screen, tap Add App.

    You will then be presented with the list of apps in your device. 

  5. Find the app you want to change the text size of and tap on it.

    In this tutorial, let’s use Notes as an example. 

  6. Once it’s added to the App Customization section, tap on the app.

    This will open the app’s settings screen. 

  7. Tap Larger Text to open the setting.

    You will be brought to the screen where you can adjust the text size. 

  8. Drag the slider to the right to make the text larger.

    Or to the left to make it smaller. Everything depends on your preference. 

  9. After doing that, launch the app.

    You will immediately see that it has larger or smaller texts and labels than other apps. 

  10. If you want to revert the app’s text size to default, just follow the same steps and tap Reset Font Size to Default.

    Doing so will immediately reset the text size to default size.
