I have my phone set up to use large text to reduce eye strain.

Most apps work fine but Screen Time daily graph is unreadable because the numbers on the X-axis overlap:

(My morning alarm was going off when I took the screenshot, that's why it says "Rise and shine" at the top.)

How can I find out what time I stopped using the phone last night?

I don't want to fiddle around with making the text small / large every time I want to go into Screen Time. What are my options for getting this fixed? Seems like an accessibility issue...

I just want to find out what time I put down the phone last night.

  • some hint might be in battery life history

  • Have you tried turning you phone to landscape orientation?

  • Sidenote: this is clearly not expected behaviour, you can report the bug to Apple on apple.com/feedback Oct 15, 2021 at 15:19

As a workaround until Apple fixes this bug you can change the text sIte more easily by going to Settings > Control Center and enable "Text Size".

This way you can control the text size from Control Center (and also change it only for the Settings App).


As @anki suggested, I can find out what time I stopped using my phone by checking battery level history:

Yesterday I didn't use my phone after 10 PM.

The activity graph is completely readable.
