How to Zoom Out iPhone Lock Screen or Home Screen

iPhone includes hundreds of features that we aren’t aware of yet, and after knowing about those features, the first thought that comes to our mind is, “Why didn’t do it earlier?” In this article, I’m addressing one of the un-rated iPhone features called Zoom Out. Basically, when you enable Zoom Out on iPhone 15 Series, 14 Series, 13, 11(Pro Max), iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, or earlier, the App icons on the Home screen magnify/zoom out and fit on the iPhone screen.

iPhone also allows you to set the desired Zoom level from the menu. Also, from the home screen, when you tap on the borderline of the magnified zoom screen, a slider appears on the screen, which lets you check the real-time zoom function. However, one of the major problems described by one iPhone user is, “My iPhone is not behavior with me suddenly when I came out my iPhone from my pocket. Something happens when I put it into the pocket. Some gestures or settings activated on press the screen”.

This function is handy and easy to use small screen iPhone and See small objects in HD resolution.
