When you are browsing the web using Safari on your iPhone or iPad, sometimes it can be difficult to read small fonts on the screen. On the other hand, you might find a site that has huge fonts and it makes things equally difficult to read. If you are using Safari on your iPhone or iPad, here’s how to make the text size on a website larger or smaller.
This is for iPhone and iPad running iOS 13+
You can use Safari’s built-in text zoom feature. This feature only changes the text size of the web page. It keeps everything else as it is. The images and other UI elements will stay the same. Once you have changed the text size of a website, Safari will remember it the next time you open the page.
First, open the Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad and visit the web page where you want to increase or decrease the text size.
Next, tap the “aA” button on the top left-hand side. Refer to below image:
Now, tap the “a” button to reduce the text size, or tap the “A” button to increase the text size. See below image:
The default text zoom is set as 100%. You can reduce the text size to 50% or take it up all the way to 300%. See following image where the screen is displayed at 50%, 150%, and 300%:
If you want to quickly reset the text size to the default, simply tap the percentage value in the middle. Refer to below image:
Safari’s text zoom feature works in the Reader Mode as well. If you would like to read a long article without the site elements in larger text size, we recommend that you use Reader View.
Now, after loading the page, tap and hold the “aA” button to enable the Reader View.
Note! Not all websites support Reader View.

Next, tap the “aA” button again. From here, you can increase or decrease the text size. See following image:
