The Safari browser on iPhone provides the option to enlarge text size to suit your own visual requirements. This option can also be useful for reading long articles on websites that use smaller fonts.
Enlarge Font Size on iPhone Safari Browser
For some reason, websites dealing with serious topics like Oxford Academic Journals, Oxford American, Financial Post and others tend to use smaller fonts, tighter line spacing and highly compressed long paragraphs.
If you find it difficult to read articles on such websites, try increasing the Text Size by 15% and you may be surprised to see the difference.
While the option to increase font size is also available in accessibility settings, you may find it better to use the option to Enlarge Text Size as available within Safari browser.
