Your iPhone or iPad is packed with features that can make it easier to use, whether you want larger text or help swiping. You can also use your AirPods as hearing aids or turn your iPhone into a magnifying glass.
Make Text Larger
You can make the text larger on your iPhone, so the screen is easier to read. This feature won’t work in every single app, but it will work in many of them.
To find this option, head to Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Text. Drag the slider at the bottom of the screen to select a larger text size. You can also enable “Larger Accessibility Sizes” here to select much larger text sizes.
Use AirPods as a Hearing Aid
If you have AirPods, Apple lets you use them as a makeshift hearing aid. Just activate the “Live Listen” feature with your AirPods. Your iPhone’s microphone will capture audio near you and play it back louder through the AirPods in your ears.
To do this, you’ll need to head to Settings > Control Center and then add the “Hearing” shortcut to your Control Center. This option will only appear if you have AirPods or other compatible hardware connected to your iPhone.
You can then open the Control Center and tap the ear-shaped hearing icon to enable or disable Live Listen.
