Have you ever accidentally triggered the zoom feature on your iPhone and found yourself stuck with an enlarged screen that you can’t seem to get back to normal? It’s a frustrating situation, but luckily, there are several ways to fix it.
In this article, we’ll show you six different ways to bring your iPhone screen back to normal and disable the zoom feature so it won’t happen again.
First, it’s important to note that in most cases, the zoom feature is simply enabled and can be easily turned off. All you need to do is double-tap the screen with three fingers to zoom in or out. This same gesture works for both zooming in and out.
If this doesn’t work, the next best option is a force restart. For iPhone 12, press and quickly release the volume up button, then press and quickly release the volume down button, and finally, press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears. After restarting, the screen should automatically zoom itself out.
If neither of these options works, you can turn off the zoom feature using iTunes or Finder. Simply go to your device page, scroll down and click on “Configure Accessibility,” then deselect the “Use Zoom” checkbox.
If your phone is still stuck on the zoomed lock screen, you can use ReiBoot to enter and exit recovery mode. This software recognizes your device and highlights the section to exit recovery mode. Seconds later, your device will be back to normal.
Finally, updating or reinstalling the iOS on your device might be necessary. Both iTunes and ReiBoot can help you with that. iTunes will reset all settings on your device, while ReiBoot will reverse all the settings on your iPhone and turn off the zoom feature for you in the process.
In conclusion, if you accidentally trigger the zoom feature on your iPhone and find yourself stuck with an enlarged screen, don’t panic. With one of the six methods we’ve outlined here, you’ll be able to get your iPhone screen back to normal in no time.
