Minimum Recommended Sizes areas of touch for iOS and Android:

5. A site with a lot of content? Make search a prominent feature

If possible, try to make search a prominent feature if your site has a lot of content (especially in the desktop version).

6. Do not choose the font size at random. Use the font scale

If you need to quickly, practical and without any guesswork determine a set of font sizes, use font scale

As the name suggests, the font scale works at a scaling factor (say 1.25).

The approach is to start with a base font size (e.g. eighteenpx) and multiply (or divide) it by a scaling factor (e.g. 1.25) to get a larger font size (e.g. H1, H2, H3, etc.) or a smaller hierarchy (e.g., title, button, etc.) etc.).

Using a font scale will help you create texts that look harmonious and quickly bring consistency, rhythm, and hierarchy into your typography.
