Standard resolution fits more information on the screen at one time, while zoom enlarges your text and controls. You can select the display zoom mode when you set up your device, but it can be changed easily at any time. Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Display Zoom and choose either standard or zoom. Apple provides samples of what your Homescreen, messages, and email will look like in both modes.

  

Just know that when your display is zoomed, your home screen will not rotate to landscape mode.

You can also adjust the text size at Settings > Display & Brightness > Text Size.
