A Chinese developer has published a tool that exploits a vulnerability in the iOS operating system and allows users to change the font on their iPhones.
The tool does not require a jailbreak, but does require the phone to be running iOS version 16.1. 46689 and fixed in iOS 16.2.
If the user has updated their iPhone to iOS 16.2, which is recommended for security reasons, they will not be able to change the font. Then the font change will be canceled after the device is rebooted, and applications using the default San Francisco font will not change.
The tool offers a number of pre-installed fonts such as the famous font (Comic Sans MS), the font (Segoe UI) which is the default font for Microsoft products, and the font (Choco Cooky) Samsung. Custom fonts can be installed as long as they are compatible with iOS.
Notably, Apple supported mass customization of its user interfaces during the days of the classic Mac OS, when everything from the system font to window borders could be customized using the Apperance Manager tool.
These settings then disappeared in early versions of the Mac OS X operating system (Mac OS X), and changing the look of any of Apple’s operating systems has become more difficult in recent years as Apple has taken more steps to protect system files. from modification and interference.
