I noticed this when I updated to iOS10. The text font size is too small for me read without zooming in. It only happens with daily KOS stories

    Hmmm. That's interesting. iPhone or iPad?
    I'll leave this open to see if anyone else has had this difficulty post-update, and I will investigate in-house too.

    I do not know whether there is a way to adjust the default text size in your iOS 10 display, but I suspect there is. I encourage you to search for a thread in an online user community that discusses that sort of thing. Just about everything relative to iOS performance and adjustments is discussed online; the challenge is sometimes wading through it, or framing your search terms well enough.

    A postscript: We have seen and ticketed this issue for fixing, which should be deployed shortly. Thanks for asking. (Actually, it was deployed last week. Sorry for the misleading info.)

    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    We've not heard of any other issues with the site on that iOS version. Have you checked your display settings? Is it possible for you to update your iOS, which is at least 11 now?

    You're welcome.

    Now that you've changed the settings, I suggest that you clear the data on your iPhone. You can do so just for Daily Kos if you go to
    Settings --> Safari --> Advanced (waaay down at the bottom) --> Website data --> dailykos.com
    If you delete our data, then reboot your phone, that ought to help reset the site presentation for you, too.

    True enough about updates. This one has been pretty innocuous for me, but your mileage may vary.
