While most people seem to be familiar with the flashlight option on the iPhone, the magnification features that the phonede camera uses to enlarge text, it seems a little less well-known. That’s because it’s buried in the settings menu. Here it is how to use the magnifying glass when you need it: If you’re using an iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, or iPhone XR, just triple-tap the button on the right side of phone. If you have an older iPhone, triple-tap the home button bring up the Magnifier app. You will see a screen similar to this: Use the slider to increase or decrease the text size. Tap the screen to focus, similar to camera application. tap the padlock button to fix focus or use filter button (bottom right) to apply different filters that can make it easier to read. Finally, tap the center button take a picture. That’s it.
