    This huge overblown aspect of the OS is crazy. Please give us the ability to scale or make things smaller. I don't get more content with this bigger screen, just bigger content.

    Perhaps the Apple Team's eyes are getting worse with age. I'm not on iOS 10 yet, so maybe that's worse.

    I've also noticed over the time the iphone has been out my hair has greyed significantly. In other words correlation =/= causation

    Maybe your hair is harmoniously subconsciously synchronising with the space grey iPhone! Will wonders never cease? :D

    Sounds like Apple is realizing that people like to quickly glance at their phones or quickly be able to read through things here and there and so they are making things somewhat larger in places. The consistency and having options that apply more consistently as well might be a bit in question though.

    Except it seems with lock screen notifications. In the case of IOS 10 it's not that they are noticeably smaller (be interesting to check though), but the black on grey is actually harder for me to read quickly at a glance than how they appeared in iOS 9.

    Plus they now remind me of the opaque iOS look I used to have on my 4s when I turned on Reduce Transparency.

    There's that too. And smaller font that comes up in Mail for various people.

    So the whole thing that things are getting larger for better visibility doesn't really even quite hold up.

    Perhaps they realise their main buying group is getting older and older (no new blood), so make the text / icon bigger and bigger (make sure we can read the screen) to maintain their sales.

    Or they know their price is too high. So make sure the iOS is more focus on the rich old man, and make this group of people have reason to upgrade their iPhone every year. :p

    I originally was going to title the thread 'iOS 10 is designed for seniors' because that's how I feel. I really hope something else becomes available.

    At the same time it doesn't really explain why other new items mentioned earlier are smaller and/or harder to see.
