By default , Apple has restricted users from changing the font on their device . However modding your iOS device is one of the best reasons why people jailbreak .

If you’re one of those people who’s in love with fonts then Bytafont is definitely made for you .
With Bytafont , you can download from the many fonts available on Cydia and easily apply the font on your device across many apps . Installed fonts can be easily applied and new fonts added to the list . It also has the added option of setting different fonts for some of the stock apps such as Camera, Keyboard , iBooks etc . This is one of the charms of Bytafont that makes it better than other alternative tweaks on Cydia .
The font that has been used in the above screenshot is “Harry P” . To get Bytafont 2 , simply head to Cydia and download it for free from ModMyi repo . Upon installing Bytafont 2 , you’ll find the app installed on your homescreen .
