iOS Tips
  • Magnify the fine print: Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn on Magnifier. Then triple-click the Home button to use the camera to zoom in on small details. Tap the shutter to freeze it. 
  • Quickly react to a message: Instead of typing a reply, express yourself with a tapback...double-tap a message bubble, then choose a response.
  • Remove webpage clutter: “Reader” in Safari makes articles easier to read. When you see the 4 lines in the search field, tap it to see just the text and photos - without ads.
