An exploit in iOS 16 allows users to change their iPhone’s font using a new tool.
Zhuowei Zhang recently released a tool that can change the smartphone’s font system-wide through a vulnerability in iOS 16. It was patched in iOS 16.2, meaning those who have the updated version may no longer be able to do so.
The iPhone font changer tool is available for download on GitHub. It can change the iPhone font to one of several choices, including DejaVu San Mono, Fira Sans, and Comic Sans. The change affects the look and feel of the entire system and can be reverted back to the font standard used by Apple.
To check your current iPhone software, go to Settings, then General and About, where you will see your iOS version. Users are advised to download the latest iOS update (currently 16.2) to fix security vulnerabilities and take advantage of the software’s new features.
