Manage iBooks Settings on iPhone 6
Freya, Rushell, Eng
You're watching VisiHow, and today I'm going to show you how to alter your settings in iBooks on the iPhone 6.
To begin, we bring up our lock screen by pressing the Home button at the bottom of the phone
Alternatively, you can bring up the Home screen by pressing the unlock button on the right-hand side of the phone
You can swipe across the screen and enter your pass-code if you have one
I have a pass-code enabled on my phone, but I also have the fingerprint scanner set up
If you do as well, you can press your finger on the Home button to open your phone.
I keep my applications sorted in different folders
My iBooks application is in my Other folder, so I will tap to open that folder. The iBooks icon is orange with an image of an open book on it. Tap that once to open the application.
Once open, iBooks should take you to your main library
However, if you were recently reading an eBook, it may take you to the last page you were on in that book.
Maybe while you are reading you find that the lighting doesn't suit you
You can alter the settings to your preferences. To begin, tap on the icon that shows a small letter A and a large letter A together.
The Fonts screen will appear
With the top bar on that screen, you can slide to change the brightness
Just below that is the font size
To make the font smaller, tap the smaller letter A on the left, or to make it bigger, tap the larger letter A.
You can also change the font by tapping on the Font name, which is located across from the word Fonts
My default font is Georgia
Maybe I want to change to Charter, so I'll tap that. The font in the background should change, and then you can tap Back at the top right corner to exit Fonts.
If you're reading at night, you may prefer something a bit lighter on your eyes, rather than a bright white screen
You can tap the black circle where it says night.
This will make the screen black and the letters white
I personally like the Sepia tone in the middle
Tap the middle tan circle to see it. This seems most like a real book to me, and it is much lighter on the eyes than the white screen, which can be quite dazzling if it's fairly dark in your room.
You also have the option for an auto night theme
If you have that option on, the phone will recognize when you are in a darker location, and it will automatically turn to night mode when the room is dark. If the switch next to that is green, that option is enabled.
Tapping on the switch across from Scrolling View will enable constant scrolling
What this will do is allow you to scroll up and down on your screen to read the text rather than just tap on the screen to turn the pages.
To exit the options screen, just tap anywhere else on the screen
