How To Increase Font Size Of Safari On iPhone


As a huge Apple fan, I often use a Safari browser for better browsing instead of Google Chrome. But while using the browser, usually one question pops up on my mind that is “why is my Safari font so small” and how do I make the font bigger in Safari without zooming on my iPhone.

Before iOS 15, there was an option to change the text size of Safari at the left side of the address bar on the top. Even many users use zoom to increase and decrease the text size on iPhone. Zooming the Safari page is not the permanent solution. You cannot zoom page every time you open any page. Luckily, iOS 15 has the new feature to simply and quickly increase the font size for the Safari app on iPhone.
