iPhone Running iOS 10 Can Now Be Turned Into Magnifying Glass

If you thought that the ten new iOS integrations mentioned at the WWDC keynote were the only interesting additions made to the new iOS, then you were wrong. There are a whole bunch of other smaller additions which are equally interesting.

One such feature would be the Magnifier feature which can be found in the iOS 10 accessibility settings. The recent expansion of the iOS accessibility options has made it easier for users who may need specific features because of a certain disability like the need for voice overs the visually impaired, as Apple inculcates all of these options as part of the operating system so that they can be activated anytime.

The new magnifier feature allows users to take advantage of the iPhone or iPad camera through which they can quickly enlarge important things. This magnification is done through a custom camera user interface which is entirely separate from the main Camera of the devices.

The custom user interface mentioned before operates mainly through the display of the iPhone and acts as a view finder. The user therefore gets to see what is exactly in the view and can then move to the specific content that he wants to enlarge.

Furthermore the already included UI ends up giving a more powerful experience. In situations where there is need of low light magnifications the user has quick access to a flash in addition to the fact that he can lock focus to take a freeze frame if the need ever arises.

You also have the option to adjust the brightness and contrast to make the view more comfortable to the eyes as well as a zoom slider to zoom in an out.
