How to use zoom in iOS 6 for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

Zoom works everywhere, including the Home, Lock, Spotlight screens and even with applications you purchase from the App Store.

To activate the Accessibility features on your device:

  • Select Settings + General + Accessibility.
  • To use the Zoom function, press the Zoom option under Vision.
  • Press the On/Off switch to On for Zoom.

 

Gestures

Using different gestures with Zoom you can select and magnify your device's screen.

  • Drag three fingers around the screen to scroll the view area.
  • Do a three finger double tap and, without taking your fingers off after the second tap, drag them up or down the screen to zoom between 100% and 500%.

You can continue using the familiar flick, pinch, tap, and other iOS gestures to run your favorite applications.
