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.

My icons are too big and i cant reduce the size???


Hi,

Please follow this steps to set back the font size or icons of your Iphone.

* Tap the "Settings" menu from the iPhone home screen.

* Tap "Accessibility."

*Tap the word "Off" next to "Zoom" to turn the Zoom feature on.

*Return to the iPhone home screen.

Tap the iPhone with three fingers twice in succession. The home screen icons will be magnified to 200 percent. To adjust the zoom level, touch the screen with three fingers then move them up to increase the zoom, and down to lower it. The next time you tap the screen twice with three fingers, the iPhone will automatically return to your custom zoom level.

Icon very big how can i make it small


First of all try this: Tap the iPhone with three fingers twice in succession. The home screen icons will be magnified to 200 percent. To adjust the zoom level, touch the screen with three fingers then move them up to increase the zoom, and down to lower it. The next time you tap the screen twice with three fingers, the iPhone will automatically return to your custom zoom level.
If it doesn't help, follow the steps below and repeat the above (step 5.)
  1. Tap the "Settings" menu from the iPhone home screen.
  2. Tap "Accessibility."
  3. Tap the word "Off" next to "Zoom" to turn the Zoom feature on.
  4. Return to the iPhone home screen.
  5. Tap the iPhone with three fingers twice in succession. The home screen icons will be magnified to 200 percent. To adjust the zoom level, touch the screen with three fingers then move them up to increase the zoom, and down to lower it. The next time you tap the screen twice with three fingers, the iPhone will automatically return to your custom zoom level.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello Nanagruv,

Just tap 3 fingers at the same time on your iphone's screen. What happened was you unintentionally grabbed the iphone thru your pocket and had placed three fingers at the same time in the screen.

Please let me know if this works. Goodluck!

My i phone 32GB has magnified the icons on the screen making it difficult to use. It will not return to normal.


If you can not get to settings etc as icons too large, use three fingers and double tap the screen this will then reduce the icons to normal. Then go into Zoom as previous post and turn to off. The exact same thing just happened to my Iphone and I range Apple and this is what they told me to do. Hope you get it sorted.
