    I dont know if this is an iOS10 feature or it was there before but I never knew about it

    This is a real bonus for me and my aging eyesight I was always scuttling off looking for reading glasses if I could not read something especially on electronic equipment.

    But now just bring this up by tapping 3 times even when its locked and I can see everything perfectly!

    Is this better than just using the camera and digital zoom? That's what I (and I'm sure millions of others) have been doing. Seems easier to invoke, too, than 3 clicks.

    I don't know, pressing the home button 3 times seems rather easy/quick.

    Oh no doubt, but with the camera being available a swipe away, also easy. But its 6 of one, a half dozen of the other, I guess. I was just wondering if Magnifier had any special non-camera features. I'll play around with it and see myself!

    I invoked it while I was in Safari yesterday. Nothing wrong doing it from the lock screen though.
