Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

3 Answers

My Iphone is stuck on zoom. The lock screen and the springboard are zoomed in on and will not zoom out. I've tried reseting, rebooting, and have done the restore process, but none of it works. I can still access my phone by holding my finger on the screen and slowly slideing around the zoom screen until I get to where I want. Is there a bad App causing this? Any Suggestions. When I restored it two times. The iphone worked until I put all my media on it. Then It went back to zoom again. Help?!

While your iphone still on zoom, double tap the screen with 3 fingers, make sure 3 fingers, it will bring it back to normal display. I don't know how the zoom feature can get turn on but if you want to turn off this feature then go to Setting --> general --> Accessibility --> set the zoom off. hope this will help

How do I zoom in when my iPhone 6 is stuck on zoom on lock screen?

Don't bother...its like fighting with available memory.
Just exit and start over.
With problems like these, get a system optimizer to get rid of running apps that are sucking-down your memory.

My i phone is stuck with a huge screen i cant even pick up calls or reduce thye screen help please !!

This is actually not a problem. This is one of the Accessibility features of the iOS. You accidentally zoomed in the screen of your iPhone 4. What you should do is tap on the screen using 3 fingers at the same time. That will zoom you out to normal screen size.
To turn off that feature, go to Settings>General>Accessibility> Turn OFF Zoom or any of the other stuff in there if you don't need it.

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.

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".
