Using the Magnifier On Your iPhone

The magnifier on your iPhone is a hidden app that you can use to read small text on medicine, food items, menus and more. You can also temporarily save images so you don't need to keep the iPhone pointed at the item.

    You can also access the magnifier via the Control Center.
    The share menu allows the photo to be saved to the Photos App.

    Personally, I find the easiest way to access the magnifier is through the Control Center.

    This is really neat. I was able to folllow your directions and now have the magnifier operating. So much iPhones can do thanks for sharing.

    I absolutely love the magnifier. I use it all the time. It's great when trying to look at the back of a piece of tech that's against a wall, for instance, a tv I can reach my hand behind to plug something in or out, but can't see what I'm feeling, this is super handy for that. Or taking a quick picture of something that I don't want to be saved to my photos and the cloud. I have memory issues, so taking a temporary picture of a model number while I walk to my computer to search for it, golden.

    I wish I had known about this when I was trying to put my phone in my mouth to photograph my broken tooth for my dentist when he asked for a picture. I will remember for next time.
