By default, iPhone and iPad are configured with a specific font thickness, however this thickness may not be suitable for all users, thus preventing its correct reading. In this case, most users would think of increasing the size of the words, however the thickness of the letters can also be increased, which also facilitates reading without increasing the size of the letters.

In general, if we increase the size of the letters, we also increase the size of the items displayed on the screen. This can cause the amount of content displayed on the screen to be much less than the original. To avoid this situation, iOS also offers the possibility to make your letters and words bold.
Changing the font of our iPhone or iPad in bold may not only be due to the need to improve its display, but it can also be done for purely aesthetic reasons. Many users prefer to display all the bold text displayed on the screen of your iPhone or iPad. In this case, the only thing that will be affected will be the Text and in no case will the other graphic elements of the iOS operating system be affected.
That said, below we want to show you step by step how to make the text in bold on your iPhone or iPad with Apple iOS:
How to make text bold on your iPhone or iPad with iOS:
– Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
– Access the option Screen and Brightness.
– In this new screen you will have to activate the switch next to: Bold Text.
– When the confirmation menu is displayed, you must click on the option: Continue.
– After turning the screen black for several seconds, you will see how all the text on your iPhone is now shown in bold (thicker).
Bold text will affect all text displayed on the screen, including inside applications. It will also affect the virtual keyboard of the device, meaning that the letters on the keyboard will also be shown in bold. However when you send the text, it will remain standard, that is, the user who receives the text will continue to view it by default.
It is important to bear in mind that this configuration is completely reversible, that is, you will be able to display the letters in the default thickness again, you can do it by repeating exactly the steps shown and deactivating the switch: Bold text.
It should be noted that the iPhone bold text function will not have any impact on the text of the websites visited from the Safari browser. If you want to modify the text of the visited websites you will have to use the reading mode of said browser.
