That feature existed, but only for the standard tab bar, right?

Prior to iOS 13 the feature was not fully public API.

Please, take this message to designers and partners. Dynamic type does have design considerations that devs can’t — and shouldn’t — unilaterally change. In 6 years, since iOS 7, I’ve never once seen a design referencing text styles, or heard of a non-dev who knows what they are.

Good point - and without a doubt, everyone needs to be on board with this. It makes such a huge difference to many people.

Contrast matters too; I can’t use my iPhone without increased text size and contrast as well. With OS X were like this sometimes, but I forget what accessibility settings there were in Syatem Preferences other than contrast/motion/transparency/cursor size.

Without Dynamic Type, much of iOS would be unusable for me. As is, when I encounter an app that doesn’t support Dynamic Type, I’m reduced to pinching (to zoom in) and squinting. 😐

I finally got to work on an app that supported Large Text (though with a custom set of text styles). It was fun, and rewarding. 😀
