The mobile version of my site is really small

So I've been following all the tutorials and have been doing the code. I loaded the link onto chrome on my iphone 6 and the text was really, really small and when I rotated the phone, it adjust for landscape mode, but when I rotated back to portait, it didn't adjust completely.

Am I jumping the gun and this get's touched on later?

Possibly add a media query to increase the size of the font when the screen width is that small. That'd be my first suggestion.

you have many options. I see that you are working mobile first - so you start with min dev width. in this case make sure that you add your columns right. I recommend to use flex box for multiple items like this. or you need to work with grid - container - row - column. this will help you to stack elements and to distribute them on desktop. flex box supported in IE10+ and all the modern browsers

Thanks guys!

I added a responsive.css with a media query for screen with a min width of 650px.

Just wondering, as the tutorial I'm doing is a couple of years old and i'm testing this on an iphone 6, when I rotate the phone to horizontal. It's displaying the webpage as if it were on a computer (or a larger device).

I've got this little bit of code: @media screen and (min-width: 1400px) And am playing with that minumum width, but it doesn't seem to effect the page's display in landscape mode on my iPhone 6
