Swift version: 5.0
You can add a subtle embossing effect to any text in your app using
NSTextEffectLetterpressStyle. As an example, this code creates an attributed string using 24-point Georgia Bold in red, with Apple's letterpress effect applied, then writes it into a label:
let attrs = [NSAttributedString.Key.foregroundColor: UIColor.red, NSAttributedString.Key.font: UIFont(name: "Georgia-Bold", size: 24)!, NSAttributedString.Key.textEffect: NSAttributedString.TextEffectStyle.letterpressStyle as NSString ] let string = NSAttributedString(string: "Hello, world!", attributes: attrs) yourLabel.attributedText = string
