iOS 8 includes Hidden Settings to Change Fonts, Tweak UI

iOS 8 - Hidden Settings

One of the reasons users jailbreak their iOS device is because it gives them the ability to change the font using tweaks like BytaFont.

Developer Hamza Sood who has revealed a number of hidden iOS 8 features, has posted some screenshots from his Twitter account, which reveals that iOS 8 includes configuration options in a hidden Settings panel, which could allow iPhone and iPad users to tweak the UI with different fonts and also change the text colors and highlights.

However, as developer Steve Stroughton-Smith points out it seems unlikely that Apple will provide this customization options to the end user, and could be useful to a developer to debug label and tint colors.

iOS 8 - Custom UI and fonts

Developers can access these hidden customization options by enabling the UIUseAlternateUI global preference in the iOS 8 UI kit on their device.

It would be wishful thinking to expect Apple to enable these configuration options when it releases iOS 8 later this fall, but I won’t be surprised if a Cydia developer releases a jailbreak tweak to enable this hidden settings just like the SpringBoard settings in iOS 7.
