    Its either coz the text size is more or due to the zoom feature in the Accessibility setting.

    Go to Settings > General > Text Size.

I think that the standard icon size on my iPhone is too big. However, people with poor vision will benefit from larger icons instead. If you iOS device is jailbroken, the icon size can be customized.

It is unbelievable how apple restricts users on the customization front. Many users would strongly appreciate at least some freedom regarding personalization and customization. By their nature, jailbroken devices have many of these limitations removed.
1.Open up the Cydia app from your springboard.

SOURCE: Iphone icon enlarged

My wife just had this same problem. The entire screen gets zoomed in to where the icons are large. I found that it is a 3-finger double tap function that causes this.

Try double tapping your screen with 3 fingers simultaneously and see if this fixes your problem.

Hi my iphone screen has enlarged icons and i can't get it to return to normal size. i've tried resetting but it doesnt help


To unzoom your device and return your icons to normal size, hold three fingers together and double tap the screen with all three fingers at once. This will bring you back to the normal size icons you're used to seeing.

Enlarged icons and screens that won't shrink!!


This is what you need to do. Double-tap on your iPhone's screen using 3 fingers. That way, the screen will go back to normal size.
In case you want to enlarge it, you just do the same thing.

All the icons and font etc are large how can i adjust it back to the original size ????


Hi there Marivel,

Hope this is not too late. To bring back those icons and font to original size, just tap you 3 fingers to the iphone screen at the same time. That's it.

Chances are, you might probably grabbed your iphone from your pocket and accidentally placed 3 fingers on the screen.

Please let me know if this helps :)
