How to Zoom In on an Email in iPhone Mail

The iPhone's relatively big screen is still a small screen by many a measure. The text is legible — in particular if you have enabled Large Text (or set a minimum font size in earlier versions of iPhone Mail) — and images discernible, but sometimes bigger would be better.

Fortunately, you can zoom in at a finger's tap; not only in Safari but also into your emails in iPhone Mail and iPad Mail.

To enlarge part of an email text or image in iPhone Mail:

  • Double-tap on the desired portion.
    • Alternatively, start with two fingers close together on the portion you want to enlarge and move them apart on the screen.

To go back to full view, double-tap (twice, if necessary).
