The process of customizing applications on the iPhone is possible, but not known by many, for example, making the font for an application very large, but without changing the font in the entire system. You can customize apps with some simple but important things through a setting hidden in the accessibility settings, called Per-App settings. Find out what you can do in your apps with this setting.

Add apps to Per-App Settings to customize them

This hidden Per-App Settings… will allow you to adjust or unhide the text size bold type And customize the forms of buttons and other features of any application on the iPhone. The customizations may be few, but given the modification of the text size within the application, for example, it is an important thing for all iPhone users, so instead of changing the text size on the entire system, you can only change it for each application separately. To use this setting, do the following:

Note: The iPhone must be updated to iOS 15 or later.

◉ Add apps to Per-App Settings through Settings -> Accessibility -> Per-App Settings.

◉ Next, click on “Add an app” to choose an app.

◉ Find the app you want, you can only add one app at a time.

◉ You may see separate customization options for the Home screen, Live Captions, Magnifier, and Siri, along with most Apple apps and all your apps.

Customize the settings of each application

To make changes to an app, tap its name in each app's settings menu. For most applications, you can set the following options even if you don't do anything in the application. Each app will have settings between default, on, and off, as well as larger text, and a slider to increase or decrease the text size.

◉ Bold text: When turned on, it darkens most of the visible text on the screen.

◉ Larger text: Sets the text size you prefer.

◉ Button shapes: When turned on, it adds a shadow or shape to any clickable element to make it stand out.

◉ On or off buttons: When enabled, it adds a vertical line on the button when on, and a circle when off, see the following images.

◉ Reduce transparency: When this setting is on, it improves contrast by reducing transparency and blurring some backgrounds for clarity.

◉ Increase contrast: The color contrast between the foreground and background of the application is increased.

◉ Discrimination without color: This setting is intended for people with color blindness, and this setting is not present on the iPhone, and if it is found, it may replace the options marked with red and green circles, for example, to make red in the form of a circle and green in the form of a square. Here is an approximate picture:

◉ Smart reverse: This setting is well known, we have always used it before there was a dark situation on the iPhone, and it reverses most of the colors on your screen, including in some applications that use dark color patterns, and will not affect photos and videos.

◉ Reduce movement: This reduces the movement of elements on the system as a whole, including the effect of the visual parallax of home screen icons.

◉ Cross-Fade Setting: This reduces the movement of UI controls that slide when appearing and disappearing. This setting only appears when Reduce Motion is turned on, either for your entire system or just for the app you're customizing. On the Home screen, it applies to all the apps on your device when you use the App Switcher.

Autoplay video previews: It automatically plays any video previews shown in the app.

Remove apps from Settings for each app

If you don't like some of the settings you've chosen for an app, you can go back and change them. You can also delete the app from each app's settings to undo all your modifications. The easiest way is to swipe left quickly on the app until it disappears from the list. And if you don't swipe fast enough, click the "Delete" button. You can tap Edit at the top, followed by the (-) sign next to the app, and then Delete.
