Although the iPhone keyboard keys enlarge when you tap them to display what key you're pressing, they can be hard to read due to the iPhone's screen size. To correct this problem, iTunes has an Accessibility feature that enables easier keyboard viewing by zooming in on the keyboard using three fingers. This feature can be turned on or off by simply accessing your device's settings menu.
