Font size bigger on Iphone XR

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 35
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS
    The problem is quite simple but I didn’t find a workaround yet. My fonts are simply bigger (a lot bigger) on Iphone XR and I can’t find how to fix it. As you can see it ruins my layout.

How can I resolve this?

can you provide a simple isolated reproducible example on https://snack.expo.io? easier for us to help out like that.

to verify that this is something in your code, run the default example when you go to https://snack.expo.io/ on both ios and android and notice that the font sizes are very similar

Unfortunately I don’t have access to an Iphone XR (it was a screenshot of my clients) to test that way.
Could you see anything that would produce that behavior though? I’m using a custom font and applying fontSize everywhere I use it.

if you have a macos device you can open an iphone xr simulator to test it out. i do not know of what could cause the behavior without seeing some code that reproduces it :slight_smile:

Any chance you have changed the system font size? I had this problem on a test phone and that turned out to be the issue. I ended up having to add “allowFontScaling={false}” to every Text element in order to prevent scaling issues
