A “magnifying glass” function that allows you to use your iPhone like a magnifying glass. Previously, it could be started after enabling “Magnifying Glass” from “Accessibility” in the Settings app. However, in iOS 15, the magnifying glass is now the default app, so you can use it without any hassle. This time, I will introduce how to use such a magnifying glass.
Since this article uses the iOS 15 public beta version, the screens and procedures may differ from those released as the official version.
Use a magnifying glass
First, open the “App Library” on the rightmost page of the home screen. Search for “magnifying glass” in the search window at the top of the screen and tap the magnifying glass app that appears.
The magnifying glass will start, so let’s project the object you want to magnify. You can change the magnification and adjust the brightness to make it easier to see. Other features such as filters and contrast are available.
Customize the way functions are displayed
You can make it even easier to use frequently used functions by changing the display position. Tap the settings icon at the bottom left of the screen to display the “Customize Controls” screen. It is possible to move while pressing and holding “≡” of each function.
After moving the frequently used items to the main control, tap “Done”. The moved function is displayed at the top.
You can also add a magnifying glass to the control center or place it on your home screen. Settings You can set from the app or App library.
