A developer named Zhuowei Zhang has created a tool which can change the system-wide font of an iPhone. This could be done by exploiting a security loophole in past versions of iOS 16. To use the tool and change an iPhone's system-wide font, it must run iOS 16.1.2 or earlier since Zhang used a security loophole patched in iOS 16.2, according to the report.

The tool is available on GitHub as an IPA file and lets users choose from several fonts, such as Comic Sans MS, Fira Sans, and DejaVu Sans Mono, the report added.
