How to Increase Contrast and Reduce Motion on iPhone/ iPad

Apple has officially released the iOS 10 version and then update to iOS 10.2 and enabled all supported devices to be installed with this software. If you own an old iPhone/ iPad device like iPhone 5 or iPad 3, you can update to the latest iOS version for the best experience. But like every new update, old iDevices will face the lag, slow respond issues.

To fix the issue, you need to delve further into visual accessibility in the Settings app on your device. You can increase contrast on your iPhone, so that somewhat transparent options will show up more clearly, and also reduce motion. The apps on your Home screen will not move around so much and button actions will not be as pronounced, but your device will respond more quickly. Here is how to increase contrast and reduce motion on your iPhone/iPad

How to increase contrast on your iPhone/iPad

Step 1: Open Settings app from your Home screen.

Step 2: Then, tap on General.

Step 3: Tap on Accessibility

Step 4: Select Increase Contrast

Step 5: Here, toggle on the switch next to each option you’d like to enable:

  • Reduce Transparency: Turning off ‘Reduces transparency and blurs’ on some backgrounds help to increase the legibility

  • Darken Colors: Darkens colors will make text stand out more
  • Reduce White Point: Turn it on to reduce the intensity of the bright colors
