Reading Safari articles on your iPhone isn’t always the most pleasant experience. If you find yourself squinting to read the tiny text on your screen, you may benefit from enabling your iPhone’s built-in feature that allows Siri to read out Safari articles to you. Of course, you can also increase text size for all Safari articles to lessen squinting, but this only allows you to see a few sentences at once before needing to scroll.
Letting Siri read Safari articles for you can also come in handy if you’re trying to read in bright sunlight. Even the best smartphones are no match for the sun on super bright days, and it’s easier to make Siri speak an article to you than it is to try and read it yourself.
And who knows? Maybe letting Siri read Safari articles to you will encourage you to check out more articles overall. See how to enable this helpful iPhone trick below.
