You can force the text of any
UITextView to have padding – i.e., to be indented from its edges – by setting its
textContainerInset property to a value of your choosing. For example, to give a text view insets of 50 points from each edge, you would use this code:
textView.textContainerInset = UIEdgeInsets(top: 50, left: 50, bottom: 50, right: 50)
