    Apple has enabled this feature to change the sizes of your icons. I am drawn to both and wanted your guys's opinion on which you would select?

    I wish there was a toggle for this in Control Center. Sometimes I don't have my glasses in which Display Zoom would be handy. Right now I have to triple tap and scroll around which is cumbersome.

    Not sure til I have it in-hand. I like the idea of having the same amount of apps on a page but taking up less space but we'll see what I like once it's in front of me. I'm particular about how I arrange my apps (as everyone is), so I can see this option being a good choice for some people out there.

    I was previously unaware of this feature, so thanks for posting about it. However, I don't think it's for me so I'll likely leave it off.

    Remember that this isn't just icons, it's also inside every single app. Makes it pointless having a bigger screen.

    Looking at the video from the front page that has zoom turned on I'm pretty sure I'm going without zoom. With those giant icons it kinda looks like a kids phone.

    But of course, I'm sure there are people for which this is a great option to have.

    Does anyone know if you can get another row of icons on the last row of the non zoomed in version? if so, this will throw everything out of whack if you move it into display zoom mode, and push apps over to the next page... I would hope this extra space is just not wasted...

    I thought display zoom was only for the 6 plus. I'm not sure though, can someone clarify?

    It's for both.

    ----------

    Unless you want everything more legible without looking awkward, which is the current solution and only works with text. My parents will probably love this feature.

    But then you lose another row of apps!

    Really though, that's dumb.

    Might not look half bad on the 6 lane bryant.

    Oh, hell no. I can't wait to jailbreak (when it's available) and shrink those puppies ever further, add another column of icons, and get my scrollable dock back.

    Looks a bit janky. Kind of like bumping up the DPI settings on a Windows computer. Never looks good.

    I feel like that option is for old people #justsaying #sorrymom

    Absolutely, I am legally blind and the bigger default font (especially in apps that don't use Apple's font size controls) will make a huge difference to me.

    Now if only I could set the min font size for Safari.

    Haha, yep like me. After years of reading book and monitors (law school) my near site vision is shot. Now I need reading glasses like an old timer. Stinks!

    I'll most likely use this unless it looks really ugly in practice.

    Honestly no disrespect to the OP, but have we hit a new preorder low here?

    Six Rows?

    I still don't understand why 6 rows of icons have not appeared anywhere. Will it be possible? Apple's page says "Standard view lets you see more of your apps", yet none of their pictures shows more than 5 rows. Maybe just because they only show their own apps? But they have more apps (pages, etc). SMH.

    No - I bought a larger iPhone so I can see more content, not just to make it all bigger.

    This is a great Accessability feature though. This, along with large dynamic text and auto-speaking alerts make it a much better product for the visually impaired.

    I would do it, for the icons only, but I'm not willing if its going to zoom in my apps also.

    No. What would be the point in the bigger screen?
