Go to (settings > general > Accessibility > Zoom) and click turn off zoom. Warning: getting around to just do this is a royal pain in the ***. Be patient.

Go to your settings (settings > general > Universal Access?) and you should be able to dig around and find an option for Universal Access. Turn off zooming.

Maybe, you accidentally zoomed in the screen of your iPhone, to zoom out, use three of your fingers to double-tap the screen simultaneously. Do the same thing to zoom back in.

Screen doubled, now cannot log in, cannot stop iphone


It may be too late, but if you try double tapping with three fingers then dragging up or down, this might change the zoom of your screen, showing the rest of the screen for you. Then go to Settings>General>Accesibility>Zoom and turn it Off, if it's not already. Also, restoring your iPhone will keep all your media, Contacts, Documents, Calendar etc, but you will lose your preferences and settings and probably your network information also. Hope this helps...

Iphone home screen zoom in


This happens when you accidentally put the iphone in zoom mode, which is one of the "accessibility" features under the "settings" icon. Most likely the user accidentally "double tapped" the screen with three fingers. This is what launches zoom mode. To change the zoom, double tap the screen with three fingers and drag the three fingers down or up the screen. To avoid this recurring, you can go to Settings>General>Accessibility>Zoom. Then set the Zoom feature to "off".

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.

ZoomMany iPhone applications let you zoom in and out specific elements. For example, you can double-tap or use the pinch gesture to expand webpage columns in Safari. Zoom is a special accessibility feature that lets you magnify the entire screen of any application you’re using to help you see what’s on the display.
Turn Zoom on or off: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > Zoom and tap the Zoom On/Off switch.
NOTE: You cannot use VoiceOver and Zoom at the same time.
Zoom in or out: Double-tap the screen with three fingers. By default, the screen is magnified by 200 percent. If you manually change the magnification (by using the tap-and-drag gesture, described below), iPhone automatically returns to that magnification when you zoom in by double-tapping with three fingers.
Increase magnification: With three fingers, tap and drag toward the top of the screen (to increase magnification) or toward the bottom of the screen (to decrease magnification). The tap-and-drag gesture is similar to a double-tap, except you don’t lift your fingers on the second tap—instead, drag your fingers on the screen. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger.
For best results using three-finger gestures, relax and let your fingers touch the screen naturally.
Move around the screen: When zoomed in, drag or flick the screen with three fingers. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger so that you can see more of the screen. Hold a single finger near the edge of the display to pan to that side of the screen image. Move your finger closer to the edge to pan more quickly. When you open a new screen, Zoom always goes to the top-middle of the screen.
