    The home button can also be used as a touch ID sensor if you place your finger or thumb on the button.
    This will open the home screen.

    On the home screen, we are looking for the Settings icon.
    It is a gray box with a series of gears inside.

    On the 'Accessibility' screen, we'll scroll down to the second section to find 'On/Off Labels', which is the last option in that section.
    On/Off Labels are the little 'O' on the right when it is off, or an 'I' which would indicate that it's on. It is much like a light switch indicating open or closed circuits.

    For example, if we tap to turn on 'Bold Text', it simply turns the left side of the switch green.

    However, if we tap on the switch for 'On/Off Labels', the switch turns green, and there's a little 'I' on the left side of the switch.

    When the option is off, there is an 'O' on the right side of the switch.
    In fact, all of the buttons now have this on them, an 'I' on the left when the option is turned on, and an 'O' on the right when the option is turned off. This continues with buttons throughout the phone, allowing us to easily see if a button is on or off, which is helpful for those with a visual impairment, or if using a device that does not recognize colors and may require an indicator.
