Nice to meet you, *****!
Have you already tried to enlarge the print but something went wrong or do you just want to know how to do it?
If you haven't tried to fix it, then try this:

  1. Open a book on your Kindle.

  1. Tap the top of the screen to bring up the reading toolbar.
  2. Select the Aa icon.
  3. Choose the text size appropriate for your reading comfort level.

What app do you use to read books on your apple device?

Customer Replay

Im not sure. I downloaded it from the Apple store and have used it for a few years but I have lost all the info bars that allow me to highlight, make notes on the text, and enlarge the text etc.
It is called Apple Books

Okay, good.
Thanks for clarifying.
Launch the Books app from your Home screen.
Tap on the book you want to read.
Tap the appearance button. It's the aA icon at the top.
Tap the A to adjust the font size. The smaller A makes it smaller and the larger A makes it bigger.

Customer Replay

I have found it but am not sure what the appearance button is as I havent an A icon at the top.

Is it possible for you to send a screenshot of what you see?

something magically appeared at the bottom right hand corner while I touched the screen randomly bit it did bring up a window which is titled Themes and Settings and under that options and different font sizes and backgrounds. I dont understand why or how I got it today and not yesterday???

That's quite strange. So can you change the font size now?

Customer Replay

Thank you I have closed the window and been able to find it again. So I think Im ok. there are all the things there that I want and I think I can access them reliably now...
