What font / color is used for section headers?

Forums > SwiftUI


Does any one know exctly what font is used by default in Section headers?

                Section(header: Text("AN AMAZING SECTION HEADER")) {

It looks like

.font(.system(size: 15, weight: .regular, design: .rounded))

but that seems not exactly the same font.

Thank you!


Hi, It looks a lot like


if not the same, i checked in apple design resources and it says SF Pro, Regular, 13pt.


Hi @flaneur7508! Off topic, noticed while helping you earlier that you often used font modifier .font(.system(size: 15, weight: .regular, design: .rounded))

Wouldn't be it much easier for you to create custom modifer and pass, say, size only. Saves a least some keystrokes while coding :). Well, if there is no good reason to do otherwise of course..

struct AppText: ViewModifier {
    var size: CGFloat

    func body(content: Content) -> some View {
            .font(.system(size: size, weight: .regular, design: .rounded))

extension View {
    func appText(_ size: CGFloat) -> some View {
        modifier(AppText(size: size))

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            Image(systemName: "globe")
            Text("Hello, world!")
                .appText(25) // <- You will just type this instead that long code you used.


Not sure if you're still looking, but incase you are (or like me, are someone else looking).

I was able to replecate it without loosing the ability to resize with the system

Text("Some Section Header Text")


The font and color used for section headers can vary depending on the specific design and style choices made by the creator of a document, website, or application. There is no universal standard for section header styles, as different designers and developers use various fonts and colors to achieve a specific look or brand identity.

If you're referring to a specific platform, website, or application, you may want to inspect the design elements directly or refer to any style guides or documentation provided by the platform. Common fonts for headers might include Arial, Helvetica, or other sans-serif fonts, while colors can vary widely based on the overall color scheme of the design. If you have a specific context in mind, providing more details could help in offering more accurate information. If you're asking about a particular website or application, you might consider checking their style guides or documentation for design specifications.


The default font used in section headers in SwiftUI can vary depending on the platform and device. However, if you're looking to match the default system font closely, you can try using the .system modifier without specifying the design parameter:

Section(header: Text("AN AMAZING SECTION HEADER").font(.system(size: 15, weight: .regular))) { // Your section content here }

By omitting the design: .rounded parameter, you're allowing SwiftUI to use the default system font, which should provide a closer match to what you're seeing elsewhere in the app.
