Why should I use bold text on my iPhone? Some people may feel it is unnecessary or even hates having the bold text on their iMessage. At the same time, others may think that it makes their message look important. There are two options to send messages in bold text.

Enable The Show Subject Field Feature

The show Subject Field feature will let you send a message with the subject as you always do on email. The bold text will only appear as the subject, while the body of your message will remain normal.

  2. Scroll down to the Settings screen to find Display & Brightness and tap it.
  3. Find the Bold Text option and toggle the light gray button next to it to become green-colored.

You may want to give your parent or grandparent a new bezel-less iPhone model. Though the phone has a larger screen, which is fantastic, one issue remains. They cannot see the text correctly due to eye issues. Even though you have enabled the bold text, the font size is still too small for them to see. To solve that problem, you can change the font size on the iPhone.

  1. Go to your iPhone's home screen and tap Settings.
  2. Select the Accessibility option and tap on it.
  3. Tap on Display & Text Size, then tap Larger Text.
  4. You will see a font size slider at the bottom of the screen. Drag it to the right to adjust the font size as you want.
  5. If you think the size is too small after dragging it to the end of the slider, toggle the Larger Accessibility Sizes on the upper screen to a green color. Then, continue dragging the slider to get the font size you desire.
