How to use your camera as a magnifying glass on iPhone and iPad

New in iOS 10, the Magnifier essentially turns the iPhone or iPad into a magnifying glass, using the built-in camera.

If you have trouble reading the newspaper or need to see the fine print on a label, just fire up the Magnifier and it’ll magnify things up to 500%.


How to enable the Magnifier

1. Launch Settings from your Home screen
2. Tap General
3. Tap Accessibility
4. Tap Magnifier
5. Tap the switch next to Magnifier


Once enabled, just triple-press the Home button to start it up. You may have to choose Magnifier if you have multiple accessibility options enabled.
