iOS 7 – Having Trouble Seeing Your App Names?

I, along with millions of others, recently updated my iPhone’s operating system to iOS 7.   While I like the visual effects of iOS 7, I quickly discovered that I was having trouble reading the names of my apps.   I know that iOS 7 is supposed to be a gentler, kinder interface for the app names were a little too faint for me.

It was easy enough to fix.  I just activated Bold Text in the Accessibility options.  Just go to Settings > General > Accessibility.    Go to ‘Bold Text’ and move the slider from left to right.   Note that a restart of your device will be necessary to activate this.

These are the before (left) and after (right) screenshots.
