How to Use the Magnifying Glass on Your iPhone

With Magnifier, you can turn your iPhone into a magnifying glass to zoom in on and detect objects near you. Here’s how to use it.

There are two ways we recommend finding the Magnifier app.

The first is to add it to your Control Center. To do this, go to Settings > Control Center then tap the Add button next to Magnifier.

To open Control Center, swipe down from the top-right corner of your screen. Then click the Magnifying Glass icon.

The second way to find Magnifier is to search for it. To do this, pull down on your screen and type “Magnifier” into the search bar.

Once you have the app open, drag the slider next to the Magnifying glass icon to zoom. You can also tap the brightness or contrast and apply color filters.
