Changing the Clock Font on iPhone

Have you ever wanted to customize the font of the clock on your iPhone? While Apple doesn’t provide a built-in option to change the clock font, there are still some creative ways to achieve this. In this tutorial, we will explore different methods to personalize the font of the clock on your iPhone.

Method 1: Using a Custom Wallpaper

One way to change the clock font on your iPhone is by using a custom wallpaper. With this method, you can choose an image that includes a different font for the clock. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Find or create an image that has the desired clock font.
  2. Save the image to your Photos app.
  3. Open Settings and tap on “Wallpaper”.
  4. Select “Choose a New Wallpaper”.
  5. Browse through your photos and select the image with the custom clock font.
  6. Adjust and crop the image if necessary, then tap “Set”.
  7. Choose whether you want to set it as your Lock Screen, Home Screen, or both.

Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll see that the clock font has changed according to your custom wallpaper.

Method 2: Using a Widget App

Another option is to use a widget app that provides customizable clocks with different fonts. These apps usually offer various designs and styles for clocks that can be added as widgets on your iPhone’s Home Screen. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the App Store and search for a widget app with customizable clocks.
  2. Download and install the app on your iPhone.
  3. Open the app and browse through available clock widgets.
  4. Select a clock widget with the font you prefer.
  5. Follow the app’s instructions to add the widget to your Home Screen.

Once added, you can rearrange and resize the clock widget as desired. This method allows you to have a unique clock font without changing your wallpaper.

Method 3: Using a Jailbreak

For advanced users who have jailbroken their iPhones, there’s an additional option to change the clock font. Jailbreaking allows you to access system files and modify them as per your preference.

Please note that jailbreaking voids your warranty and can introduce security risks. Proceed with caution and at your own risk.

If you have a jailbroken iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Cydia app on your iPhone.
  2. Search for “ClockFontChanger” or a similar tweak.
  3. Install the tweak and follow any additional instructions provided.
  4. Once installed, go to Settings > ClockFontChanger.
  5. Select the font style and size that you want for your clock.
  6. Respring or restart your device for changes to take effect.

Keep in mind that this method requires technical knowledge and should only be attempted by experienced users who understand the risks involved.


Although Apple doesn’t provide an official way to change the clock font on iPhone, these methods give you alternative options. Whether it’s using custom wallpapers, widget apps, or even jailbreaking, you can personalize your iPhone’s clock font according to your style.

Remember to experiment with different methods and find what suits you best. Enjoy customizing your iPhone’s clock font and make it truly unique!
