Then tap on the thumbnail in the corner of the screen.
On the editing screen, press on the plus icon on the bottom right.
Here, choose the ‘Magnifier’ from the list. It will give you a magnifying glass to add to the screenshot.
The blue dot increases the size of the circle while the yellow dot increases the zoom.

There is another way too. On your iPhone, open the Magnifier app. If you don't see the Magnifier app, on the Home Screen, swipe down and search for Magnifier.
Magnifier can make an object easier to see by zooming in, applying colour filters, adding light with the flashlight, and adjusting the brightness or contrast of the image without taking an image.
