How to Change System Font in iOS 7

How to Change System Font in iOS 7

The biggest flaw in Apple devices? Incompatibility with non-Apple devices AND a hell lot of restrictions that users like me of course don’t appreciate. iPhone and iPad offer you so little user customization that unless you hate to change anything in your life, you are going to feel the need of jailbreak. I wanted to get rid of that boring font and apparently there was no simple built in setting solution for that. I managed to find a solution though (I always do).

I was glad to see that my favorite BytaFont has been updated to version 2 for iOS 7 and 64-bit A7 chip. BytaFont 2 is free jailbreak tweak that allows you change the system font on your jailbroken iOS devices. Here are a few things I found useful.

  • First of all jailbreak
  • Install BytaFont 2 as follows:
    Launch jailbroken app store Cydia and search for BytaFont 2
    Download and install BytaFont 2, (not BytaFont as that’s not compatible with iOS 7)
  • Download fonts as follows:
    Launch Cydia once again and go to Sections tab.

Find the Fonts section and go to BytaFont 2 sub-section there.
You can install any font that are available in this sub-section. There are other sections too with some great fonts but sadly they are not compatible with BytaFont 2.

I downloaded and installed the Neuropol Font from the list (this has been my favorite for a while, you should try this one too).

  • Change to the Font you just installed as follows:

Launch BytaFont 2.

Tap on the Basics tab and look for the font you installed (in my case, Neuropol).

Tap on it, it will ask you if you’re sure you want to proceed. Now unless you have done all this for nothing, tap the yes button.

  • This will restart your device after which you will be glad to see that you’ve got rid of the previous ugly looking font.

To use that font in apps like Camera, iBooks and the keyboard, go to “Advanced” tab and select the font. To revert back to the default ugly font, uninstall BytaFont 2.

I came this video about iOS 7 Cydia Tweaks: BytaFont 2.  This videos shows you How To Change Font On iOS 7 For iPhone iPad & iPod Touch.  I am sure this will help.
