Increase Font Size in Safari on the iPhone by Using Reader

The font / text size in Safari on the iPhone and iPod touch can be maddeningly small, but a simple way to increase the font size on just about any web site is to use the Reader function that is new to iOS 5:

  • From any Safari window, hit the “Reader” button in the URL bar

  • Tap on the “aA” icon in the upper left, then select the larger A on the right side

Your eyes will immediately thank you.

This works on just about any web site that has text articles (including ours), but many news sites and blogs will require that you clicked through an article link in order to load properly, or else only the top-most story will be rendered in Reader.

Reader is only available in iOS 5, you should upgrade if you haven’t yet. You can check out our other iOS 5 tips and coverage here.
