Change home screen icon grid size?

    The icons on the phone screen are arranged in a grid (My Cubot Note S is a 5 x 5 grid for example). Some phones, LG or Samsung I think, allow the user to change the grid size.

    A friend who really likes his iPhone would like to make a smaller grid so that he can see the icons better without glasses.

    I wondered if there is a method / way / library which can do this in Android and/or iOS?

    It would be necessary to change the grid size and the size of the icons. Any ideas?

    I try to steer clear of all things Apple 'ish ...

    A google search shows ways of making the icons smaller .. but the grid resize thing seems to involve jailbreaking the device.

    edit .. this probably applies to Android as well ... many hits on how to change icon size ... but the grid size is another matter.

    Grid size is controlled/changes by the launcher, mine Nova. All launcher I presume has this features.
    You do not have to do any thing in the app for it.

    I recommend the Evie launcher on Android. I use it on all my devices so I have a consistent experience across them all. It is elegantly simple and allows you to change the grid size both on the home screen and in the list of applications.
