Learn how to change display settings and set the text size of all the apps on the iPad.

With iPadOS 15, Apple introduced the ability to change display and text size options on a per-app basis (I have a separate video on this), but you can also change these same options for all of your apps on the iPad.Need the text larger across all your app? Or maybe you would like to reduce the motion effect? Learn how to change your display and text size across all your app in this video for the iPad.

Video TranscriptIn this video, we’re going to look at how we can change the display and text size on the iPad. This is an accessibility option, and what we’re able to do is change our text from regular text to bold text. We can make it larger. We can add button shapes are on/off labels. In this video, we’re going to look at how we can do this across all of the apps on the iPad. If you want to change them on a per app basis, I have a video on how to change all the settings on a per app basis that was introduced to the iPad office. 15. What we’re going to look at here is how you can do it across all of the apps on your iPad. Let’s see how we do this. Let’s go to my iPad.

Now, as I mentioned in the introduction, what we’re able to do with our apps is make the text bold or change the size of the text or add button shapes. We can do this across all of our different apps. This is an accessibility option. So what we need to do is open up our Settings app, and then what we do is we go over to Accessibility. Under Accessibility, you’re going to see Display & Text Size. I tap on this and I can see all of the options.

So from here, what I’m able to do is make my text bold, make it larger, add button shapes, add on-off labels, or even reduce transparency. I can also increase the contrast and differentiate without color. I have Smart Invert and Classic Invert, as well as color filters. I can reduce a white point and change the auto brightness.

Now, any changes that I make here are going to affect all of the apps on my iPad. If you want to make them on a specific app, you can make a lot of these same changes on a specific app. What you’ll want to do is go back over to Accessibility, and then go to Per-App Settings. I have a separate video on that. We’re just going to look at how you can do it across all the apps. So now I just go back over to my display and text size.

What we’re going to do is just make our text bold. So I just tap on the slider here and let’s go and add button shapes. We can already see that the text is bold. Now we’re going to add button shapes. When I add button shapes, it’s going to underline anything that is a button. So now I tap on the slider here and now we can see we have an underline there. This is a button shape, and this is going to go across all my different apps.

I’m in the Settings app right now. Let’s go over to my Messages app. So I tap on the Home button, and then we go over to Messages. When I tap on this, you’re going to see that my text is bold and I have button shapes. So those changes that I made there affect all of the apps on my iPad.

So that’s how we can change our display and text options on the iPad. Basically, what we’re able to do is make the text bold or change the text size. We can add button shapes, reduced transparency. We have a number of different options that we can change. This is all done through Accessibility. So we have to open up our Settings app and then go to Accessibility. You’re going to see Display & Text Size. Tap on that, and any changes that you make will affect all of the apps on your iPad.

So that’s how you customize your display and text size on the iPad.
