When you are looking at entries in the native Calendar app on your iPad, the text might be too small for you to comfortably read. Unfortunately, changing the font size in the “Mail, Contacts, Calendar” section of the device’s preferences settings will not enlarge your Calendar items. Instead, you need to change the iPad’s Accessibility settings to make your Calendar entries appear bigger.

Step 1

Press the “Home” button on the iPad.

Step 2

Tap “Settings,” then tap “General” and select “Accessibility.”

Step 3

Tap “Large Text” and choose an option such as “40pt Text” or “56pt Text.”

Step 4

Press the “Home” button, and then tap the “Calendar” icon to launch the Calendar app using the new settings.
