    I use Zoomed mode primarily on my 6s, and did the same on my 6. I have very good eyesight, but I find Standard mode uncomfortably small. I find Zoomed mode looks a little cramped at times, and I hate losing that row of icons, but it looks terrific and text is perfectly sized. Just wondering how many of us are using Zoomed and how many are using Standard.

    Even when I was using the 6s Plus, I used Zoomed. I prefer it on both phones actually.

    Started out using zoomed mode, after a week or so I was able to go with normal mode.

    Zoomed. Keyboard is more comfortable and things are just easier to read.

    I tried Zoomed, as I just switched to progressive lens glasses this year. Switched back to Standard.

    I use standard and the highest resolution possible on every monitor I use. And I'm 51. Guess my mono vision Lasik is still holding up, although lately I have to hold my iPhone at a normal reading distance (12" from my face) instead of right up on it like I used to just out of habit. But at least I don't have to hold things at arm's length like many people my age ;)

    I use standard, but I have text set to the middle setting. It is a good compromise for these 66-year old eyes.

    Is there a way to reduce the size of certain apps, or at least their keyboard, on my 6s Plus, in Standard View mode? There are a few apps that I open that have larger than normal keyboards, which Im guessing is because they arent adjusted for the Plus' screen size.

    Standard, it's still too big. I'm going to jailbreak my phone and get upscale to run the 6 plus resolution so I get landscape and better use of the screen.

    6 plus has it too, as I'm sure you're aware but I'm saying this for hose who aren't. All has been around since the "plus" model launched. There's also dual pane apps while in landscape (iPad design) in messages, mail, etc. other apps can be landscape where they don't move at all on the regular 6 or 6S such as the App Store. Third party apps can be enhanced for similar behavior although I don't think many have done this.

    When zoomed landscape does not work on the home screen or on the settings menus.
