Zoom in an iPhone Screen
How to Zoom in to any iPhone Screen
by David Pogue, Yahoo Tech
If you turn on Zoom (in Settings → General → Accessibility), then you can magnify the screen whenever it’s convenient, up to 500 percent. Of course, the screen image is now too big to fit the physical glass of the iPhone, so you’ll need a way to scroll around on your virtual jumbo screen. Here’s the scheme:
• Turn zooming on or off by tapping the screen with three fingers. The screen is now 200 percent of original size.
• Pan around the virtual giant screen by dragging with three fingers. You can lift two of your three fingers after the dragging has begun. That way, it’s easier to see what you’re doing.
• Zoom in more or less by double-tap/dragging with three fingers. It’s like double-tapping, except that you leave your fingers down on the second tap—and drag them upward to zoom in more (up to 500 percent), or down to zoom out again.
