Apple has specific guidelines on this. Which they themselves ignore.

I have an old iPad mini that I use for reading (especially as I'm going to sleep).
I don't have my reading glasses on and invariably some "important" pop-up message from the iOS system will popup and I can't read it because it is way too small and very little contrast (font v background). I usually just click either button to dismiss the alert ([ok] [cancel]) but I usually have no idea what I've unleashed.

I also have an Android (kindle pad) that I read on and most generally I can see the messages even without glasses.

Lately, my theory is that Apple only wants young people who can see small faded fonts. I honestly have begun to believe it is on purpose. Surely they could fix this?? Unsure | :~
