COVID and learning how to make iPhone fonts larger or smaller

Stacey Doud

That’s kind of a weird mix, isn’t it? It reminds me of when my dad and I used to try to come up with some company that sold two completely different products, like “Bob’s Glovebox Light Repair and Cold-Fusion Rocket Company.”

As for the COVUD, hubby and I weren’t exposed and are feeling fine. My close relatives that are dealing with this live about an hour and a half from me, and it has been a while since I have seen them. But then there are so many feelings that accompany things like this. For us, the main one is helplessness.

Because they are COVID patients, we can’t visit. And it’s tough to talk with them because they are on a bunch of machines, so we text and wait for responses for when they are up to it. That’s frustrating in itself because when we don’t hear back soon, a million reasons cross my mind, even though, logically, I’m sure a doctor, nurse or just plain old sleep may be the true situation. They are the first close-to-me folks to get the virus, but it just gave me the “realness” of it all and how COVID symptoms are so different sometimes.

One of them has been through cancer, so she was already more susceptible than many other people. Her hubby loved to go out and see people and do things before this happened; plus, he’s in is 80s. But it seems he’s doing better than she is (my theory is because he hasn’t been through cancer). I know down deep in my heart that they will both be OK, but that doesn’t stop the worrying (and I am NOT blaming anyone for this – it could’ve been anyone or anything).

Last night, we got a text asking how to make text messages, etc. fonts larger. As we can’t really communicate over the phone, hubby and I came up with a short video to illustrate how she, or someone else in her room, could do this.

So, if you're not sure how to do this for yourself and you have an iPhone follow these steps:

  • Wake up your phone
  • Go to Settings

  • Use the slider at the bottom to set your text size

Do you have a loved one in COVID quarantine? What's been your biggest challenge? As I mentioned before, helplessness is the worst for us. Feel free to leave comments below.
