    Does the size of your text look smaller?

    I feel like I can definitely notice it when I get a notification. Now I feel like things are a little smaller in iMessage and Emails.

    Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    Changing the text size changes it across the system now. Which is great!

    It looks like everything is smaller and I haven't changed anything.

    Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Text

    or

    Settings > Display & Brightness > Text Size

    I really don't know the difference, but they do work.

    While you're there, also try Bold Text. I quite like it, since the new default font from iOS 7 is stick thin.

    Did you try changing the text to suit your needs?

    I noticed some text sized difference as well when I first installed it. Just go into SETTINGS --> Display & Brightness and adjust the Text Size (and Bold Text if you want it) it to your liking.

    I personally love the text size. More clearer text.

    I may but just to confirm - iOS7 looked great. Right after iOS8 it feels smaller. Are my eyes tricking me or did the font size get smaller?

    Banner notifications seem to have smaller text, aside from that I haven't really noticed it in general.

    Yes, some notification banners show smaller text. I noticed that too.
