Iphone 6s + 128 GB settings...

  Is there any way to enlarge the Time & Battery percent at the very top of the home page screen? It's like you need a magnifying glass to read it. I haven't been able to find anything in the setting to adjust it. As far as I know Apple iPhones don't use Widgets. On Android smartphones I found it a nice feature to have a large type Widget that shows time & date, weather temp, and battery. iOS is new to me so just trying to learn the features.

Help has arrived, Salisbury. I know I personally like to have larger font on my phone as well. Great news! You can have your screen zoomed in. Please go to Settings/Display & Brightness/View. Here you can change this to zoomed. It will make it larger. It actually makes all the icons and font larger as well. It is a great way to have your screen larger.

  The iPhone was already set to Zoomed from Standard. Which basically enlarges the icons on the home page a little. I'm trying to get the time & battery showing larger at the very top of the screen.

Hello, there is no way to accomplish what your trying to do as far as I know. Fonts in iOS 9 are even smaller than before and I know what you mean. Hopefully iOS 10 will bring some additional functionality to allow this. My fingers are crossed. Maybe someone else with chime in with a different solution.

   Thanks bd94s, I'm going to a workshop for the iPhone 6s Plus tomorrow at a Verizon corporate store. So perhaps they may have some tips or method. But I agree there doesn't appear to be any setting that will accomplish this.
