The magnifier feature lets a low vision user enlarge their surroundings with the device’s cameras. You can enable flash, lock focus, and even set traditional magnifier filters that you would expect on a handheld magnifier like yellow on blue, or white on black.
To enable this feature:
- Go to the Settings app.
- Go to General
- Go to Accessibility
- Find Magnifier
- Use the toggle switch to turn on or off Magnifier
To enable magnifier, simply press the home button 3 times. If you have other accessibility shortcuts set then it will be the last option in the menu.
Magnifier is a great new feature for iOS 10 and I am excited to hear what everyone has to say about it.
