Apple added many great features to iOS 8 and one of these features is Display Zoom, in the new higher resolution iPhones. You will be prompted to configure this feature when you set up your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for the first time.
How To Configure Display Zoom on iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus: In order to activate Display zoom feature on your new iPhone 6, all what you have to dos is going to Settings > Display & Brightness > View.
You should see something like this:
Now you will be able to set the Display zoom as standard or zoom, so set it as zoomed.
As you can see in the screenshot below, the Display Zoom is currently set as Zoomed, to switch back to Standard mode, tap on the Standard tab, and tap on Set. The screen will go blank for a few seconds, and change the resolution to Standard.
Right now you may have two questions you want to ask, the first one is: What is standard mode and the second one, what is zoomed mode.
What is Standard mode?
In the standard mode, the iPhone 6 Plus runs at 2208 x 1242 pixel resolution, which at 3x resolution works out to 736 × 414 points.
In the standard mode, the iPhone 6 runs at 1334 × 750 pixel resolution, which at 3x resolution works out to 667 × 375 points.
What is zoomed mode ?
In zoomed mode, the iPhone 6 Plus acts like a virtual iPhone 6 display, but running at 3x retina resolution, which works out to 2001 × 1125 (virtual) pixels. Here are some screenshots which gives a good idea of the difference between the zoomed and standard mode on the iPhone 6 Plus.
In zoomed mode, the iPhone 6 acts like a virtual iPhone 5s display, but running at 2x retina resolution, which works out to 1136 × 640 pixels.
