How to increase or decrease font sizes on iPhone and iPad in iOS 7 with Dynamic Type

If your iPhone or iPad is running iOS 7 you've got a lot more options when it comes to customizing system fonts than ever before. With Dynamic Type and font size, there's a wide array of options available. You can even make text bold throughout iOS 7 if you want. Not sure how to increase or decrease font size? Here's how:

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Now tap on Text Size.
  4. Move the slider back and forth in order to adjust the general text size. You'll see a preview of what text will look like.

That's all there is to it. Once you're happy with the size, you're done. If you need larger text than what the general Text Size option provides, you can do that too! Here's how:

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Now tap on Accessibility.
  4. Choose the Larger Type option.
  5. Turn the option to On and then drag the slider left or right to adjust the font size again.

Once you've got a font size you're happy with, that's all there is to it.

Dynamic Type will follow through to any app that supports it which should help for those with visual impairments. Do you use Dynamic Type? Have you increased or decreased font sizes on your iPhone or iPad?
