If you have difficulty reading fine print, there’s a feature on your iPhone that can help you. It’s called the Magnifier camera. It basically makes your iPhone a magnifying glass, so you can see things that are really difficult to see with the normal eye. Even if you have perfect vision, I’m sure you will find this feature useful.
Note that your iPhone must run iOS 10 at least for Magnifier camera to work. Now, here’s how to activate the feature on your device:
- Go to Settings > General > Accessibility.
- Next, go to Magnifier and select On.
- Now, you have enabled the feature. To use the Magnifier camera at any time, simply click on the home button 3 times. To freeze the screen on a magnified item, tap on the Camera icon.
Now that you have enabled the feature on your device, you can modify it to your taste. Here’s how to do that:
- Tap on the Home button 3 times.
- Use the slider to adjust the level of zoom you want.
- There are many more options you can customize on the Magnifier camera. These features include the brightness level, contrast level, filter, and filter color (if you activated the filter, that is).
- When you tap on the Camera icon, it freezes the screen, so you can focus on a particular subject. To reverse that, simply tap on the Camera icon again.
- To exit the Magnifier camera, tap on the Home button once.
