Use the Built-in Magnifier App
Isn’t it crazy how some people can just see without glasses? I wonder what that’s like.. Some of us do need to wear glasses, but not everyone likes them. Or, if you’re like me, you probably forget about them every now and then. If that happens to you, you can rely on your iPhone to use it as a magnifying glass.
The Magnifier is a feature that does what you think; it lets you use the camera on your iPhone as a magnifying glass. You can zoom in or out to see better, and you can even turn your flashlight on or take pictures. Keep in mind any picture you take with the Magnifier won’t be saved on your iPhone. Here’s how to enable Magnifier.
- Go to Settings.
- Scroll down and tap on Accessibility.
- Tap on Magnifier.
- Toggle Magnifier on.
- A new Magnifier app should be added to your Home screen.
After you enable this feature, you can also access the Magnifier app in your App Library or by searching Magnifier on your Spotlight Search. You just need to open the app and use the controls to zoom in on fine print you need to read.
