The iPad enables you to check your business email messages from Gmail via Wi-Fi or cellular data networks, and if you are having trouble reading the text of a message, you can increase the font size. The iPad’s setting for font size affects the appearance of email messages that you receive from all service providers and does not provide an option to adjust the font size for Gmail alone.

Press the “Home” button on your iPad.

Tap the “Settings” icon on the home screen.

Tap “Mail, Contacts, Calendars.”

Tap “Minimum Font Size.”

Tap the size you desire, such as “Large,” Extra Large” or “Giant.”

Press the “Home” button, tap the “Mail” app icon, and then tap “Gmail” to see your Gmail messages with the increased font size.
