An easier way to adjust font size on iOS 8

iOS 7 brought a universal font adjustment setting, but it wasn't easy to find. Here's where you can find the same setting in iOS 8.

When iOS 7 saw its massive redesign, one of the highlight features was the ability to change font size across the entire operating system. The only problem was, the setting was buried in the Settings app, making it difficult to find.

With iOS 8, Apple has moved the setting, making it easier to stumble upon for those who don't often dig through the Settings app.

After updating to the latest version of iOS, you can find the font size setting in Settings.

  • Open Settings
  • Select Display & Brightness
  • Look under Text Size

Once there, you'll find it's the same setting as you previously had, offering various sizes you can adjust with a slider.
