You can modify the system-wide font on your iPhone using an iOS 16 exploit

While Apple has expanded the range of customization options available to iPhone users over time, there is one aspect of the iPhone’s system font that users cannot modify. However, users who have an iPhone running an older version of iOS 16 can now change the font on their device thanks to a new tool created by a developer.

Zhuowei Zhang, a developer, created a tool that altered the system font of an iPhone by taking advantage of a security flaw in the predecessor of iOS 16. To use the tool to modify the system-wide font on an iPhone, you must be running iOS 16.1. .2 or earlier because the security flaw Zhang used to create the tool was fixed in iOS 16.2.

You can find the iOS version on your iPhone by going to Settings -> General -> About and looking at the information there. You won’t be able to downgrade if you’re using iOS 16.2 because Apple stopped signing iOS 16.1.2 over the weekend.

The tool can be downloaded as an IPA file from GitHub. Users can choose from various fonts such as Comic Sans MS, Fira Sans, DejaVu Sans Mono and others to change the font on their iPhones. The appearance of your iPhone will change if you use the tool, as shown in the screenshots below provided by Zhang.
