Apple doesn’t offer the level of customization that Android devices do, but it’s still possible to make some minor font changes to your iPhone.
Whether it’s a wallpaper, a phone case or an accessory, it’s always fun to personalize your smartphone to add a unique touch. Font styling is one of the popular features that people look for, but can you completely change the font on your iPhone?
In this article, we take a look at how to change your iPhone font, setting limitations, and alternative ways to get different fonts on your iPhone.
How to change the font on your iPhone
Unlike Android smartphones, it is currently not possible to change the font style or family on your iPhone’s system without jailbreaking your device. Jailbreaking your iPhone has its risks, so if you don’t intend to, the only thing you can safely change is the font size and weight on your iPhone.
The main method is to go to Settings > Display and brightness. Activate bold text If you prefer. Also, you can touch text size and drag the slider to your preferred font size.
To access a wider range of font sizes, go to Settings > Accessibility > Screen and text size > Larger text. Here, activate Larger accessibility sizesthen drag the slider at the bottom.
However, if you only need large font sizes in one app and not others, you can simply change the font sizes for individual iPhone apps instead of making system-wide changes.
Obviously, changing the font size and weight is primarily for readability rather than aesthetic reasons. Still, there are alternative ways to get different fonts on your iPhone.
First, you can change the clock font on your iPhone lock screen. Second, you can download iPhone keyboard apps that give you font options. You can then use the new fonts to message friends and family, write in the Notes app, or change some fonts on your iPhone’s home screen by renaming folders with the keyboard.
Simple ways to change the font on your iPhone
Although you can’t completely change the font on your iPhone right now, you can make some adjustments to its size and weight for better readability.
To add flair to your messages and home screen, keyboard apps are a great option. And once you update your iPhone to iOS 16 or later, you can also customize the clock font on your lock screen.
