If you’re worried about your iPhone battery, you can disable device throttling and take advantage of iOS 13’s optimized charging technology.
Apple also added labels to toggle switches to make them easier to identify. These add a 0 (zero) to the switch’s color when it’s off and a 1 (one) when it’s on.
1. Go to Settings
If you’re using an iPhone and find it hard to see toggles, you can use a feature called “On/Off Labels” that adds an On/Off indicator symbol to each switch. These labels are ideal for people who have vision problems or who simply prefer to visually cue themselves whether an option is enabled or disabled.
This feature is available on iPhones running iOS 9 and later and iPads running iOS 8. It makes it easier to distinguish between on and off states for all iOS devices, including the iPhone X.
You can turn this feature on or off by opening Settings, selecting Display & Text Size and tapping the switch beside On/Off Labels. Once on, you can easily check the state of all switches on your phone and change their color.
Another useful feature for people who have trouble seeing is Reachability, which allows you to make the screen of your device larger so that you can more comfortably use it with one hand. This is particularly helpful if you have an iPhone with a big screen and need to use it on a regular basis.
In iOS, you can also turn off auto-brightness if you want to keep your display from dimming too often. This will save battery life and help you conserve power.
There are a few different ways to do this, but the easiest way is by adding a shortcut to your Home screen that will automatically open the Settings app when you swipe down on your phone. This shortcut will also appear in Spotlight Search when you tap the search bar on your Home screen, making it easy to quickly access your phone’s settings.
2. Scroll down to Zoom
Zoom is an accessibility feature on iOS that enlarges elements on the screen for people who are visually impaired. But if you accidentally enable this option, it can make your iPhone screen difficult to navigate. If your device is stuck in Zoom mode, however, there are some ways to unzoom it and bring back icons to their original size.
First, you can turn the toggle off on an iPhone using the Settings app or iTunes. Alternatively, you can triple-click the Home button on an iPhone with Face ID or other models to access the Accessibility Shortcuts menu.
The Accessibility Shortcut lets you activate several features, including Zoom. It also allows you to set inverted colors, reduce the white point of the display, and narrate text on the screen with VoiceOver.
Moreover, you can set shortcuts for moving and changing the zoom window and switching between Zoom and View Mode. These can be particularly useful if you use an external keyboard with your iOS device.
Once you’ve configured the keys, you can triple-click them to activate them and then tap them again to deactivate them. This is a quick and easy way to switch between Zoom and View Mode without having to scroll down through the settings.
3. Tap Zoom
Apple has baked accessibility features into iOS so that users with vision impairments can use their iPhones to read icons and text more easily. These include Zoom, which allows the screen to be magnified.
Whether it’s the writing on someone’s shirt in a Facebook photo or the fine print on a webpage, Zoom can be very useful for people who have trouble with small text or images. There are two ways to use this feature: one is to zoom the entire screen, and the other is to create a window that allows you to magnify any part of the screen.
You can also set keyboard shortcuts to activate different Zoom features using the Zoom settings. These can be used to adjust the level of magnification, toggle the Zoom feature, move the Zoom window, switch the Zoom region, and temporarily toggle the Zoom feature.
If you’re using an external keyboard, you can also assign a Zoom controller to your fingertips by tapping on the controller in this menu. Then, you can tap and drag it to adjust the magnification level.
When the zoomed area of the screen is on your fingertip, you can also pan around it with three fingers. This is similar to how you can zoom in and out of a video.
The Zoom controls are black and white by default, but you can change them to a color of your choice to make them easier to see. Once you’ve chosen a color, you can select whether you want to have the control show up when you double-tap with your finger.
4. Tap Toggle
One of the best parts about Apple’s mobile OS is that it has a host of accessibility features. These include VoiceOver, which provides an audio description of objects on the screen.
But there is a catch: When VoiceOver is enabled, it replaces the single tap you use to interact with your device. To get around this, you need to turn off the feature.
However, you can easily do so in a few quick steps. The first step is to go to Settings and disable VoiceOver.
Then, head over to Accessibility and scroll down to Switch Control.
This is a special feature that allows you to assign switches to various actions. Once you’ve set it up, you can double or triple tap the back of your iPhone to perform specific actions like opening the camera, turning on the flashlight and more.
You can also add a switch to do something as simple as open an app or as complex as turn the pages when reading a book. This is especially useful if you frequently need to make changes to your settings.
In older versions of iOS, toggles showed On/Off labels, making them look more like a power button. But those days are gone now that iOS has moved to a new layout.
Toggle controls allow you to replace certain actions with different ones, such as muting the sound on your iPhone and switching between the ring and silent modes. The best part is that it’s easy to do.
