iPhone, Tutorials

Changing the text color on your iPhone can add a personal touch to your device and make it stand out from the crowd. Whether you want to customize the color of your messages, notes, or any other text on your iPhone, this tutorial will guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Access Accessibility Settings

To change the text color on your iPhone, you’ll need to access the Accessibility settings. Open the Settings app on your home screen and tap on “Accessibility.”

Step 2: Select Display & Text Size

In the Accessibility settings menu, scroll down until you find “Display & Text Size” and tap on it.

Step 3: Choose Color Filters

In the Display & Text Size menu, scroll down until you see “Color Filters” and tap on it. This option allows you to apply different filters to change the color of your iPhone’s display.

Step 4: Enable Color Filters

In the Color Filters menu, toggle the switch next to “Color Filters” to enable them.


If you’re using an iPhone with iOS 14 or later, you’ll find a new feature called “Smart Invert” under the Color Filters section. It automatically inverts colors but keeps images and media in their original form. You can try enabling this feature to see if it suits your preferences.

Step 5: Select a Filter

Once you’ve enabled Color Filters, tap on “Color Tint.” This filter allows you to change the overall color of your iPhone’s display.


If you prefer a specific color other than what’s available in the default options, you can create a custom color by tapping on “Color Tint” again and adjusting the hue, intensity, and color saturation sliders.

Step 6: Adjust Intensity

After selecting “Color Tint,” you’ll see a slider labeled “Intensity.” Move the slider to adjust the intensity of the color. Sliding it to the left reduces the intensity, while sliding it to the right increases it.

Step 7: Apply Color Filters

Once you’re satisfied with your color selection and intensity level, press the Home button or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (depending on your iPhone model) to exit the Settings app. The changes will be applied automatically.

Final Thoughts

Changing text color on your iPhone is a simple way to personalize your device. By following these steps and exploring different color filters, you can find a combination that suits your style and preferences.


  • Keep in mind that enabling Color Filters may affect how images and media appear on your iPhone.
  • If you don’t like the changes or want to revert back to default settings, simply return to the Accessibility settings and toggle off Color Filters.


The ability to change text color on iPhone is just one of many customization options available. Feel free to explore other accessibility features and make your iPhone truly unique!
