Legibility: make text easier to read | iOS 11 Guide

If you’re finding it difficult to read text on your device, choose to use a bolder version.

Open the Settings app and select Display & Brightness. From here turn on the Bold Text option. Your phone will restart and you’ll notice that all fonts used are thicker. You can also tap Text Size here and drag the slider to increase or decrease the text size.

When accessing Control Center or looking at other menu elements with a semi-transparent background, you may find it hard to read or see the buttons over the background. To limit this from the Accessibility options, select Increase Contrast and enable Reduce Transparency.
