I thought this would be worth a new thread, because it affects those of us with aging eyes. Here are the widths of the various screens: 8 - 59 mm** X/XS - 62 mmº XR - 65 mm** Plus - 68 mmº Max - 69 mmº (The measurements may be off by up to half a mm, due to rounding, but close enough.) The XR, Plus, and Max all show the same amount of screen information width-wise. So that means the screen elements and default font size will be smaller on the XR. The 8 and XS will show the same amount of screen information width-wise. So that means the screen elements and default font size will be smaller on the 8. *Screen element and default font sizing is similar between the 8 and XR. ºScreen element and default font sizing is similar between the XS, Plus, and Max. Regarding Zoomed Display mode: Settings --> Display & Brightness --> View --> Zoomed --> Set I know that in Zoomed Display mode, the 6s and 7 Plus have the same screen element and font sizes, despite the fact in Standard Display mode, the sizes are different. However, with the 326 ppi screens (8 and likely XR) using Zoomed Display mode can decrease quality, since you can sometimes see the anti-aliasing. I have been reminded that the X simply doesn't have a Zoomed Display mode in iOS 11. This is likely purely a marketing choice, since as mentioned my wife's 6s has it, and Zoomed Display mode should look better on the X than the 6s. Does iOS 12 offer it on the X, or will X simply never have it? Despite the fact the iPhone 6-8 have it, it appears the X and Xs will never have it. It makes me wonder if they'll have such a mode on the XS, XR (with the potential visible anti-aliasing as can be seen on the 6s), and even the Max. I suspect both the XR and the Max will have it, but you never know. Do any of the hands-on previews comment on this? Cuz I haven't seen anything about this yet. The Xs Max has been confirmed to have Zoomed Display mode. The Xr may have it, but it hasn't officially been confirmed by Apple yet. Thus, I will wait before making any decisions. Right now, I'm fine with my 7 Plus, but my wife wants to replace her 6s. I may use Zoomed Display, since presbyopia is starting, meaning I prefer to hold my phone a bit further than usual, and bigger fonts can be helpful. My wife doesn't used Zoomed Display, so she's fine with the 326 ppi of the 6s. She just wants a newer and bigger phone. So my options are: 1. I keep my 7 Plus for now and I get an XR for her. This would be the value option, and it would be perfect for her, esp. since she doesn't have a telephoto lens she'd miss. This would be a huge upgrade for her. 2. I give her my 7 Plus, and get an XR for myself. However, this would not be ideal if I decide to use Zoomed Display. The fonts would be bigger, but the quality would suffer. These 326 ppi phones look fine in Standard (non-zoomed) Display mode, but the default fonts are considerably smaller. Plus I'd probably miss the telephoto lens somewhat, even though I don't use it a huge amount. 3. I give her my 7 Plus, and I get a 64 GB Max and annoy myself with having to carefully manage my storage. 4. I give her my 7 Plus, and I splurge to get a 256 GB Max, which is complete overkill for me in terms of storage.
